How to draw a mimosa with cotton swabs
To get original and beautiful drawings, you can use various improvised materials. For example, you can draw a mimosa with cotton swab prints using any paint. And we will finish the stems and thin leaves with a brush.
In such an easy non-traditional way of drawing, you can get not only a beautiful drawing of a mimosa, but also the foliage of an autumn tree or any other objects.
So, we start with the selection of materials and tools. Mimosa drawing materials:
- wide brush;
- simple pencil;
- cotton buds;
- any paint for drawing on paper;
- a glass of clean water;
Stages of drawing mimosa with cotton buds
First of all, we outline with a simple pencil all the branches and leaves of a delicate flower. You can also immediately take a brush and draw the first lines for the central branches. We use green.
On the left branch we draw thin and small leaves that mimosa should have. We do this with small strokes of the brush.
We will also draw the leaves on the right stem. She will be bigger.
Now we take a few cotton buds for drawing flowers. For convenience, they can be tied in the center with a clerical rubber band. Dilute the first color in the form of yellow on the palette. We dip several cotton buds at the same time and then create prints on paper.
Add orange color to the palette. We dilute it well with water. Dip the other side of the cotton buds. We pass orange prints partially along the flower.
Finally, we will make the brightest imprints for mimosa. To do this, take the red color of any paint. With new cotton swabs, we will go through only some parts of the picture.
We also draw branches and leaves with a more saturated green color to get volume.
So we got a colorful drawing of a mimosa flower using cotton buds.
