Dainty Heart Wreath Watercolour


Valentine’s is just 12 days away, that really snuck up on me.  How about you?  This season to grow a component of my art, I decided to join in on the #100DayProject and work on some watercolouring over 100 days.  I decided to work around the theme of wreaths.  There’s something very lovely about a wreath, and it helps me work on my freehand watercolouring.  Sometimes I’m inspired by other people’s creations and saw a dainty heart-shaped wreath with leaves and it inspired me for this design.  

I started by making an twig/branch outline with DS Burnt Sienna, on 300 lb cold pressed watercolor paper and added in all the little leaves around the heart with DS Sap Green.  Then I added the tiny hearts in DS Pyrrol Red.  I love the asymmetry of the heart, I think it creates so much more interest.  

As final touch I stamped the sentiment from Stamp Simply’s set Love, in Memento Ink and then painted within the stamped lines with Pyrrol Red, adding a little heart in the middle.  It makes for a very simple yet classy design.
