Steps to painting my fun Confetti Flowers

I start out with an idea and put down shapes  of color , splattering some along the way.
When its dry, I use permanent ink and a fountain pen and draw flowers and leaves, and Whatever I want for a vase.
Then I start building the image , painting some gouache on the flowers, splattering, and painting the background with black gouache. When that is dry I use scrapbook paper and put small pieces of paper in just a few places. I have had a lot of fun just drawing and painting and not worrying about realistic pieces.

Step one you can see how loose this is. I just used a brush and let the paint bleed into itself. 
Step two I drew flowers onto the colors with ink.
Step three I added gouache splatters, and little squares., some shape to the vase with watercolor.
Step four was the last step and it is some collage.

Confetti Flowers

I have been painting more of the fun flowers. I am going to try to fill the sketchbook with them but now sure i will want to do that many!  It is really good practice just putting paint down, and working with it.


'Smile'  is an acrylic painting of my friend Pat.   She is always taking photos of everybody,  esp at the community happenings!...
