Step1: Copy or draw outlines

Use your pencil to copy the line art onto your watercolour paper. You can draw your own oranges and bougainvillea flowers from real life reference or images if you prefer.

Step 2: Paint the fruit

Continue painting oranges using a combination of 'light yellow' and 'orange'.

Step 3: Add leaves

Add the orange leaves. The green will make your bright colours pop!

Step 4: Paint the bougainvillea vine

Continue to add bougainvillea flowers and leaves until you're happy with your composition.
