This is a gift for your awesome mom on Mother's Day. I love watercolor painting, so I did this. Try and make this the day before to give it time to dry.
Step 1: Materials
-Pencil And/Or Pen
Step 2: Sketch
Draw the stems as long, curved lines. Make them meet at the middle and tie with a bow. I suggest using a reference photo and painting your mom's favorite flower, because it will make your gift that much more touching.
Step 3: Painting
I suggest using the overlapping effect, because I know I always think it looks almost magical. Color in the flower, stem and bow, then add highlights in colors that compliment the main color.
Step 4: Let Dry
You can test the dryness by pressing a tooth-pick or your finger to the paint and making sure the tooth-pick comes away dry.
