Spanish wild flowers are so colorful, ideal in watercolor.
In this post, I’m going to show a few steps in the making of a painting which was presented and accepted in The Salòn de Primavera 2016 of Madrid, Spain.
I started with my favorite part and visualised the finished composition in my mind without a preliminary drawing.
Here, I continued by using the first flower as a measurement for the rest of the painting.
I continued building around the first flower while observing shapes, colors, linear directions and placement in the picture plane carefully. In watercolor, you only have one shot.
This is the finished watercolor, called Spanish Wild Flowers in Blue Vase 2015
The exhibition was held in the Casa del Reloj at the Matadero in the Arganzuela district of Madrid, Spain
Here is my painting exhibited in the Salón de Primavera 2016 in La Lonja Sala of Casa del Reloj in Madrid, Spain.
