For this piece I followed a video on Strathmore Paper’s YouTube channel, which can be found here. I changed both the word and the flowers to make it my own. Unlike the previous beach scenes, this one was done on dry paper, which gave me more control over the small details, but meant that the colours did not blend as much. Going forward, I am going to be experimenting more with dry and wet paper, leading up to stretching my paper beforehand so that I can use lots of water in my painting without causing the paper to warp.
