Watercolour – Dandy Dandelion

Step 1

Gather your material from the ‘What You Need’ list, then get your palette ready with your colours and mix up a very watery green. This very opaque paint mix is a wash and is the foundation of many watercolours. Start to fill in your paper from the bottom left corner. Now mix a yellow green wash and a blue green wash and start to paint, allowing your washes to blend. Remember to leave a blank circle in the centre – we’ll need that in the next step.

Step 2

Paint a black line down from your blank circle. Now it’s time start to fill in your dandelion head with black lines starting in the centre of the circle, like the spokes on a bike wheel.

Step 3

Finish with some dashes on the ends of the lines. Your very own dandelion clock that it’s always the right time to admire.
