For the pre-sketch you use a compass or plates to get round,even circles in a good proportion. Mask the gaps between the three ground colours red, yellow and blue with masking tape and mark additional lines with a pencil.
Spread more thinned colours onto the wetted circle so that they can connect each other to a blended colour unit. Add several colour splahes by tapping carefully onto the brush tovivify the design.
Now you add a free painted, fine second circle with the same flowing colours, analog to the first one. Incline the painting carefully and let the fluid colours flow.
Let the colours dry. Finally, you can add several information into the chromatic circle, e.g.:
creative colour names: think of your own names, e.g.Thursday blue, Berlin grey,...
the real names of the three basic colours, here: Sunflower Yellow (28022), Poppy Red (28030) and Sky Blue (28041), to remember, which colours can be mixed to perfect secondaries (as this is not possible with all colours)
maybe some wordplays or motivation phrases - poetryis always a good idea.
These inscriptions you write with different fineliners and a white gel pen. To get a 3D-effect, draw some grey shadows beyond the letters. Your creativity is unlimited!

I am an artist, illustrator, teacher and author of the book "Mal dich glücklich - Aquarell malen - Motive inspiriert von der Natur" Aquarell Tipps & Tricks, Edition Michael Fischer, 2016. Since my studies, watercolour is my passion. Its lightness, colour flow and stubbornness -for me, everypainting is a new adventure. The last four years I worked as a paiter on a cruise liner, I had workshops while cruising around the world and I´ve met lots of inspiring people. I painted with more than 2.500 passengers more than 5.000 paintings in watercolour, acrylic or as urban sketches during sightseeing trips.
Now, I´m most of my time in my studio, painting all those impressions and experimenting with new techniques. For 2018 and 2019 I plan some exhibitions as well as some painting journeys.
