paint along with me outline

hi everyone good evening
here is the pencil outline for daffodil i do hope you will join in painting along with me

please leave me a comment so i know you have popped by thank you.
you will need water colour paper
im useing a hot pressed paper 600gsm

water colour paints i use Winsor and Newton Artist
here is what i will be useing
Cadmium lemon
Cadmium yellow pale
Cadmium orange
Cadmium red deep
French ultamarine
Terra Verta

 if you have Lyra Water colour crayons (closest match to  winsor and newton colours i could find)
 here are the numbers you will need
04 = Cadmium Yellow
07 = Cadmium Yellow Pale
09 = Cadmium Orange
21 = Cadmium Red Deep
68 = Terra Verta
37 = French Ultramarine
34 = Ultramarine Violet

number 4 or 6 size paint brush SHARP POINT
im useing sable as they hold lots of liquid so less refilling of brush

you will need to transfer the imaged onto water colour paper but not to heavily. once the yellow paint goes on you will not be able to remove the pencil outline
will try and back over the weekend with some step by steps in how to paint the flower
thank you for dropping by
hugs linda xxx

Thanks Linda. Your tutorials are great. I've copied the daffodil and will have a go at it. I don't know if it will be over the weekend though hope that's okay.

Thanks for this Linda, I'm going to give it a go. I'm not very confident with my colouring so hopefully this will help me improve. I'll let you know how I get on. Jo x
