Watercolor wreath is popular as an add on to your photo or text. It can be used as frame or as a logo. It is also widely use in wedding invitations or other wedding decors.
Looking at it can be overwhelming, but the truth is it is easy. In fact I just tried doing it last night. I’ve had watercolor before but never tried a wreath. And because I enjoyed doing it I am going to do a series of tutorials on doing watercolor wreath for this month of August. I will post the tutorial every Tuesday as it is my watercolor day.
FYI: I’m a jack of all trade… and I want to be a master of everything, thus, I need to do and practice everything one day at a time.
If you are new here in my blog here’s what I do in daily basis (Monday to Friday): Monday is more of freebies post, Tuesday is watercolor day, Wednesday is drawing and doodle, Thursday is a craft day, and Friday is lettering.
On Saturday and Sunday? I am going to fit in whatever comes into my mind.
Okay for this first Wreath Watercolor series, it will be the basic tutorial painting a single layered wreath.
- Watercolor Paper
- Watercolor paint in your desired color.
I use Royal LangNickel Essentials Watercolor Sap Green
- Brush. I used
No. 1 brush from Santa Fe Art Supply
- Compass to make circle (Optional)
Here’s a simple way of painting single layered wreath:
Draw a circle on the paper using compass or you can use any circular object to draw the perimeter. It will serve as your guideline to draw the stem.
Start painting the stem. There’s no need to paint the perimeter right away. Instead you can do it by portion. Then start painting the leaves.
Draw another portion of stem at the end of a leaf or wherever you want to put the beginning of a new stem. Do this repeatedly until you reach the beginning of the wreath.
I told you it’s easy peasy! Next Tuesday, I will do a layered stems and leaves with different colors.
