Variegated Watercolor Wash

I’m working my way through the On-Line Card Classes Intermediate Watercolor Techniques class. Can I just say?…the instructors are amazing….

This is the start of my homework…and I am a tad lot behind!

Just happened to stumble upon some M. Graham watercolors at one of our local framing shops. They are creamy and just yummy to work with.  I’ve used Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Rose and Nickel Quinacridone Gold with Arches 140# cold pressed watercolor paper.

Now this is version number 7,254…those girls make it look easy…it took me a while to get the hang of this technique.

Once my panel was dry, die cut and ready to mount on my card base…good golly Miss Molly…where the heck did that smudge of ink come from???  Prima flower to the rescue!  So had to add a couple of flat-backed pearls too. FYI, the sentiment is from STAMPlorations Art Is stamp set.

I love how the colors blended…it really looks like a beautiful Saskatchewan sunrise:)

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. Wow … gorgeous wash Lee-Anne. Love the pretty colours and how they blended together seamlessly. Great job! I'm with you on the course … way behind. 🙂 xx


  2. This is gorgeous Lee-Anne!! I love the ombre, especially in these colours, it's almost like a sherbet that I would get addicted to in the summer time! Yummy!! The black backing and stamping really make your panel and flower pop, what a stunning contrast! hugs 🙂
