Spring awakening on watercolour paper

02/13/2020 |

When the sun comes out in February, it awakens spring in us. It awakens the longing for mild temperatures, delicate flowers and light shades in romantic pastel. But why wait for the sun rays when we can paint the spring in delicate colours ourselves? With the SOLO GOYA Aqua Paint Marker and the SOLO GOYA Masking Marker, we can draw floral pictures that shine as freshly and delicately as the spring sun.

 

The SOLO GOYA Aqua Paint Marker inspires with its intensive, water-soluble paint and brush tip. But the pen in strong magenta can also be used to create wafer-thin flower portraits in light pink. The light transparency surronding spring buds is created by adding water. It's fascinating how the colour begins to flow on paper and the characteristic watercolour look is created. Accents inside the flower are created by small dabs with the elastic brush tip.

Nature is diverse, but only a few basic colours are needed to create flowers and leaves. We content ourselves with magenta and cyan and mix fresh shades of rose and violet. To do this, brush the colour directly from the pen onto a palette or ceramic plate and add a little water. The more water is added, the lighter and softer the colour becomes. To obtain violet, the dissolved magenta and cyan are mixed together with a brush.

What looks more enchanting than filigree, white lines on a delicate watercolour background? The SOLO GOYA Masking Marker turns flower portraits into fine line drawings amidst flowing colour. Use the SOLO GOYA Masking Marker to sketch flower branches on watercolour paper. The liquid scratch crepe in pen covers all areas that should remain white. Use the SOLO GOYA Aqua Paint Marker to give the background a watercolour wash. When dry, rub the rubber coating off with your finger. This is how easy it is to create a fascinating drawing with watercolour character!
