    Elephant Family

    Elephant Family of Three

    I painted this sweet little family of three elephants on Arches hot press watercolor paper. I used a combination on Payne’s gray, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre and ultramarine blue to achieve the varying shades of warm and cool gray tones. This print will be available in January in my Etsy shop.

    Wedding Blossoms

    Watercolor Cherry Blossoms
    by Katrina Pete

    Langton Prestige Cold press watercolor paper
    10×13 inches

    I painted these blossoms as a gift for a dear friend on her wedding day. I’ll post a step by step tutorial soon of my process. The main colors I used were Holbein Quinacridone Violet and Holbein Opera Pink. I also used Burnt Umber, and hints of green using a mixture of indigo and aureolin yellow.The first wash was made with a wet-in wet technique. Once the paper dried, I started painting the flowers and forming shapes using a ‘negative space’ technique. I’ll explain more in my tutorial coming up soon!
