Sketched with water-soluble pencils. This work matches my Flower Tapestry I sat with a gardening magazine, seed packets, etc and fitted one flower into the next. Here, once again is the method:
How sharp should a pencil be? The point should be so long and sharp that the artist can see the paper clearly at all times. A short blunt point will hide the bit of paper where you have to work.
How much water must be used to dampen bits of your design? Hardly any! Dampen the brush in water then wipe once or twice on the skin of your pulse until it feels only slightly damp.
The dark colour that binds the design is made with ultramarine blue and dark brown on top of each other, which was then dampened with a finely pointed brush. (Also view another image in the same method, called “Flower Tapestry”)
