Flowers and Fineliner

I've discovered a love for fineliner recently. I love putting a watercolour background down completely randomly, mixing colours, to see what inspires me when it's dry. I've recently gone through a phase of loving floral drawings. It started with an experiment from using a pale wash of watercolour and a drawing of a peony a few weeks ago.

I've been learning a lot about how to draw flowers and how get subtle effects with fineliner to show shade. I'll definitely be doing more in this style! It's made me become slightly bolder in colour and more carefree about where paint goes on the paper! It's a style which I really enjoy and can see being used in a number of ways. I love the anemones with the gold background - you can't go wrong with a bit of shimmer!
