Watercolour painting – Yellow Chrysanthemums

This is a recent watercolour painting I did of Yellow Chysanthemums. I posted the full demonstration on my Painting With Watercolors website if you are interested in my painting process.

The painting was done in a very loose manner taking only 45 minutes to complete. The background was placed last. The colour chosen was to complement the yellow of the chrysanthemums.

Watercolours were allowed to bleed into one another in parts to keep a painterly feel to the subject.

The painting size in a quarter sheet (37cm x 27cm or 14.5” x 10.5”) of Arches Cold Press 300 gsm paper.
