Paint-a-Flower: Rosa Floribunda Bundles
Botanical Watercolor Card
Floribunda Roses are known for their small proliferative spreads with the beauty of Hybrid Tea Roses. I wanted to capture the array of rose types in a cluster in my painting. I also wanted to experiment with deeper hues and darker blooms.
I stamped the Floribunda Rose cluster 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 four hours. I added some black 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.
