Today, we will create lovely carnations that will never wilt. You can use any color of your choice. You can use a wedge paintbrush or a paintbrush with an angled edge. A wedge paintbrush is a must-have in your collection of paintbrushes. I have some suggestions under "Watercolor" (Community) for where to get these brushes. They are often on sale so shop around!
- Wedge brush or Triangle brush (ex: Beste or Silver Ruby)
- Round brush (size 6 or smaller)
- Any color that you would like your carnations to be will work (pinks and greens)
- Paint used in the video: Quinacridone Rose, Hansa Yellow, Serpentine Genuine and if you want to get a nice yellowish green, you can mix Sap Green with Hansa Yellow)
- Watercolor paper: Use what you have! It's the best way to get to know your supplies.
- A cup of water for cool colors and a cup of water for warm colors (for rinsing) and a cup of clean water for adding to your palette to wet and mix with.
