"I'll be with you in apple blossom time"...  Pretty in pink is the color palette!  Go from a wet and loose background base to a few sharp details at the flower centers, and learn to identify negative spaces and reserve white spaces.  You can isolate and paint just a portion of the composition (the lower flower, branch, and buds, for instance) if you feel anxious about approaching the larger composition.  This lovely painting is ideal for framing, and portions of the design can be extracted for painting on greeting cards, bookmarks, or tags.

"Blossom Time" is painted in watercolor on 140 lb. Cold Press paper (sized 9 in. x 12 in.).  You may re-size the pattern to fit within the mat opening and frame size you might wish to use. It calls for a color palette using warm and cool versions of the primary hues (Yellow Medium, Permanent Rose and Permanent Red, Cerulean Blue and Ultramarine Blue) plus Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna for toning. This generous 16-page lesson contains a complete supplies list, step-by-step instructions, and photos, as well as lots of painting tips to help you improve your watercolor painting skills.
