Drawing a chrysanthemum with watercolor

Hi friends!  These days I really felt like drawing some flowers with watercolours, so I went around internet looking for references and in this website pxhere.com (where you can find copyright free pictures), I found this beautiful chrysanthemum that instantly got me.

I share with you part of the process creating the flower. It took me approximately 12 hours of work.


-Paper: Canson Moulin du Roy, 100% cotton, grain satin,  Hot pressed (Amazon)

-Brushes: Escoda 2, 0.2 (Barna Art) ; Winsor & Newton Cotman 0; Windsor & Newton 3 y 5 (Amazon)

-Watercolors: Sonnet Studio (Amazon) (they are Russian and I love the intense colors that they offer!)

*Porcelain plate (watercolour spreads much better in porcelain, however in plastic plates it tends to group)
