Botanical Watercolor Card

I modeled my African Daisy watercoloring from reference images online and a photo I took at a local greenhouse many years ago. The color palette came from Osteospermum ‘Zion Copper Amethyst.’ I could not resist the beautiful bright petals with jewel tones. They had to take center stage on my watercolor card.

I stamped the coneflower images in Limestone Crisp Dye Ink. My canvas of choice as Arches Hot Press 140 lb watercolor paper. This ensured I captured small highlights and crisp detail between petals.

The total watercolor time for this piece was around six hours. I added some light grey splatter and stamped my sentiment in Obsidian Pigment Ink. I mounted my watercolor piece onto my folded notecard base to finish this clean botanical illustration style that I love.

  7. I love, love, love your coloring here! So real, yet soft! I immediately ‘saw’ the osteospermum you used as your color inspiration. I grew these one year, the colors of the petals were irresistible when I saw them at my local greenhouse. I try to select/grow different colors of osteospermum each year but this variety is always sooo cool and hard to pass by!
