Demonstration of flowers in mixed media

By Liz Seward Relfe

 

Some photos of the demonstration are shown below.

Liz first applied warm colour washes wet into wet onto a predrawn subject

This was followed by cooler washes, still wet into wet.

Some leaves were added to define the edges of the flowers, together with the centres and some shadows on the petals.

More leaves added, together with more detail and shadows on the petals.

Extra highlights were added to some leaves and petals using water soluble wax crayons and some definition added to the vase to produce the final demonstration.
