Inside this PDF you will find a list of materials and step by step photos taken when I for created a floral wreath. Each petal and leaf was created “wet into dry”. In other words the paper was dry as I applied the paint. I tried to make the colour of each shape unique by dropping in different colour combinations and different tones. I would recommend drawing each section out prior to painting, as it can get confusing when building the layers up. Most of this wreath was achieved using a size 10 round brush, with the exception of the berries (size 0 brush) and the swirls which I created using a rigger. I’ve shown my colours as a guide but I’d love to see what colours you come up with!
