I bought these Zig Clean Color Real Brushes a few years ago and I think I've used them once or twice. Watercoloring scares me and even though everyone says watercoloring is so forgiving I feel like I manage to screw it up every time, so I avoid doing it. I grabbed the markers from my drawer, gave myself a pep talk and dove in!
I used the Geraniums Take Two clear set for my coloring. I love to do potted plants on my front deck and geraniums always do great, they are one of my favorite plants to work with. I love the bright red geraniums, I think they are so pretty! With the image I started with the leaves first, working in different layers of 2 colors of green. I then went to work on the flowers, only using a red marker and a water brush to help spread the color. Overall I like how the leaves came out but I think the color on the flowers could have been deeper. I gave it a try though, so thanks to Julie for pushing me out of my comfort zone!
