Fresh Spring Watercolor Art

Fresh Spring Watercolor Art


It is officially Spring and with it has inspired a new watercolor art project!

 For this mood board, I used Pinterest for color inspiration and then found photos to match each color

Springtime =  Colorful Inspiration!

For the watercolor background I decided to create a mood board.

I love all the bright coal, blue, and green colors!
It's SO fresh! 

For my spring time watercolor background art, I used water based brush tip markers.

To create a similar background effect:

  • Scribble color from a water based marker onto a plastic sheet (I used a sandwich bag)
  •  To activate the ink, spray water on either your watercolor paper or the inked plastic sheet
  • Place the plastic sheet on some watercolor paper and press and squish to desired effect

I love water based markers for their vibrant colors! which is awesome for creating some bright colored backgrounds.

My background compared to my mood board has more of a pink than coral, but I still love how it turned out.
