Abstract Watercolor Heart

Excited to share my first watercolor paint inspired by Valentine’s Day. I started with a quick light pencil sketch on watercolor paper, then moving on the colors a combination of permanent rose matter and a bit of white.

After it’s dried completely I added a bit of sap green inside the heart. Outside some more splatter paint in: cadmium yellow, rose matter and sap green, using a round brush number 12.

Here’s a close-up look of the abstract watercolor heart, a pretty loose and fun process. It’s a very relaxing way of painting without striving to be perfect.

Also I hand-torn the edges of the watercolor paper after the paint was finished drying. I think looks great as a frame. You may have noticed it in my previous artwork.

Shown below, I enjoyed creating these chic gift wraps for Valentine’s Day. Simply splatter a combination of a bit of Scarlet Lake color and white watercolors together, then mix them well with water to achieve a soft pinkish look. Then after some brush splatter on the white wrapping paper, let it dry.

The heart tags are a combination of a variety of pastel theme colors, using a water down process to achieve the soft contrast on watercolor paper. Hearts are then hand cut and embellished with a few gold flakes. The boxes are tied with green twine.
