• To make flower stems, use a thin brush to paint a single line of light green watercolor paint.
• When the light green is almost dry, highlight it with a line of darker green; let dry.
• To create the flowers, place a nickel-size puddle of watercolor paint in a light tone onto the canvas at the top of one stem.
• Hold a straw vertically, straight over the top of the puddle.
• Blow into the straw to spread the paint into a sunburst pattern and let it dry.
• Repeat the process with a deeper, more saturated tone of the same color and let it dry again.
