If you know how to draw, then for sure you can create anything on the canvas. What if you are just learning or would like to learn ?! Airy and romantic sakura is one of the symbols and images that most people associate with Japan. Drawing a sakura blossom reminiscent of spring is not so difficult - all you need is watercolors, water, brushes and paper. Let's master some drawing skills using the example of Japanese cherry blossom.
Determine in which places of the drawing the sakura flowers will be compositionally located.
Moisten these areas on the paper with a wet brush so the colors are fuzzy and blurry, then brush a little dark gray or black paint on the brush and outline the centers of the flowers.
Rinse the brush and draw in a small amount of fuchsia paint to set the basic tone of the pink flowers. Apply drops and spots of pink paint around the black centers so that it spreads to form the natural outlines of the flowers.
Dry the brush and paint again to draw the contours of the petals more clearly, applying the outline with dotted touches of the tip of the brush.
After you finish decorating the appearance of the pink flowers, move on to drawing the sakura stem. To do this, select the main background shade of the branch - light brown or beige, and with a thin brush, draw the twists of the branch with light movements, not trying to make the branch and its branches perfectly straight.
Paint with a thin brush with dark brown paint and shade the background of the branch to make it look more voluminous. Do this with a dry brush to simulate the rough texture of the stem.
Then pick a lighter color and paint in a few subtle white strokes to add volume to the branch.
Using a wide wet brush, dampen a piece of paper around the branch you painted. Lightly tint one half of the sheet with blue paint and the other with pinkish paint.
To make the background uniform, moisten the brush and blur the harsh strokes, smoothing out the edges. Dry the watercolor and frame the painting.
