Flowers from São Paulo

Artist: Sabrina Eras, Brazil
Artist Statement: I like to use my sketchbooks with watercolor but it´s sometimes hard to find one with a paper that makes me happy. But when I saw this Beta Series that a lot of artists are using, I decided to try it and felt in love.

I am especially passionate about painting flowers, and I draw and paint them everywhere. Because of that, it was natural for me to paint this bouquet using my favorite medium, watercolor. For this page, I wanted to try something without lines, letting the colors blend naturally, giving shape to the flowers. I can´t wait to go outside with my new sketchbook for some plein air.

MEDIUM: Watercolor
SURFACE: Beta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – Cold Press Finish
