Back into Watercolours

So great to be back into painting with watercolours are spending lots of time with other medium in my art journal. I joined Ohn Mar Win (@ohn_mar_win) and Clare Therese (@claretheresegray) on Instagram with their #7DaysofAutumnFlowers.

I used a Fabriano Leporello Accordion Journal because of the size and I wanted to try this format of journal again. My watercolours are a mixed of Daniel Smith, Schmincke and Holbein. Finally, I decided to purchase a couple of local brands of watercolour brushes to see how they are against the international brands. Honestly, I am loving them! In the photo below (in the foreground) you will see 2 types of mop brushes from Mairtini; the smaller one, partly hidden, is a travel brush version. On the very backside, resting in the mouth of my stone tiger, are Princeton watercolour brushes.

This one is actually flowering blackberry which I made a mistake in labeling.
Wanted to sketch from real flowers but I found that dahlias are poisonous to cats.
Sunflowers of different varieties.
I had more fruits on this one compared the flowering blackberries because both flowers almost look identical.

You can check out the video below to see how this journal unfolds. I am definitely looking to adding more autumnal flowers just to complete this one side of the journal. I’ve planned on doing some research about the autumnal flowers in China to add to this journal.

Do you paint watercolours?
