I had TONS of fun creating this watercolor bicycle using products by Art Impressions. Seriously – if you haven’t already, you need to pop on over to the Art Impressions You Tube Channel and start watching and taking their watercolour tutorials – they are easy to follow, you only need basic supplies and the results are so professional! I know I am addicted!
Here is the project I created.
And here are the basic instructions for you to follow along if you like.
- Stamp the Art Impressions bicycle, using Ranger Archival ink on a piece of watercolour paper. Apply blue marker 526 to acrylic palette. Add water with a paintbrush. With a very light hand and very little water, paint the bicycle, leaving areas with no colour.
2. Repeat this process with a black marker N25, painting the tires and adding shadows to the baskets and seat.
3. Repeat the same process with a brown marker 947, painting the baskets and seat. Use more or less water to create different shades. ALWAYS use a light hand.
4. Using a dark orange 925 and light orange 933 marker, stamp different values of the Art Impressions circle flower stamp slightly over top of the baskets. Use a paintbrush to apply a small amount of water over the stamped images to create a watercolour effect.
5. Repeat this process with both the green foliage and yellow flower stamps by Art Impressions. Use a green 177 and a yellow 993 marker to colour the stamps. Use a paintbrush and a small amount of water to create a watercolour effect in the same manner as above.
6. Finally, stamp the flower and stem Art Impressions stamp using both a green and a red marker. Again, apply a small amount of water to the stamped images with a paintbrush to create a watercolour effect. A super duper easy little project that looks so darn cute! Yep I am addicted!
