Watercolor and Ink Straw Paintings

IMG_20130920_134434Straw paintings are a super fun way to explore watercolor and ink techniques. You will need: watercolors, watercolor paper (or poster board), India ink, straws, water, cups, and brushes. Here are the easy steps: 1. Draw a simple image using your brush and ink (flowers work well). 3. Wet your brush and select the colors that appeal to you. 4. Apply the colors to your paper with plenty of water, and blow on them through your straw. 5. Let your painting dry and enjoy your piece of original artwork!
