Hello! I really want to share one of my favorite things to draw/paint – crystals! These are two works I created last year, but I was lucky enough to remember to take progress photos! So I thought this would make a great blog post to share my process.
- Pick my colors/mix
- I chose liquid watercolors for this
- Cold Press Watercolor Paper
- Look at pictures and/or your own crystals
Next I continue adding more color…
I continue to add color until it’s finished, at the end I use a very small brush to make horizontal hash marks across the crystals to show their natural pattern.
Overall I love liquid watercolors, but the Radiant come out much brighter and colorful, I prefer the slightly more subdued versions, though the Radiants are gorgeous! They really worked well for the butterfly!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy crystals too!
