Winter Jasmine using Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolours

Anita Pounder paints a beautiful Winter Jasmine flower in Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolours. In her creative process, Anita expertly adjusts ready-mixed colours, and encourages you to not stick rigidly to the source photo if your painting requires it. She touches on the trickier parts of the painting, such as maintaining colour clarity when creating a darker value. After creating her vignette background she goes back into her painting to darken areas of contrast and lift out highlights to accentuate her painting with these finishing touches. Have a go at painting it yourself, the reference materials are below and don’t forget to share it with us!
