The thistle was done by painting a square with water. Then with sap green, yellow ocher, burnt umber paint was swirled around the edge and on the wet square. It created a marble effect. Then a dry paper towel rolled in a circle removed the paint for one flower. A damp brush lifted the paint for the stems and the other bud. What was unusual was after it dries you paint with color pencil the flowers. I didn't have the right kind of pencils but them did pretty good. At least it turned out well enough to understand how this could really be a fun way to paint flowers.
