colourQ challenge #302

This week's colourQ challenge colors are lovely, especially Bermuda Bay! I saw a card on Pinterest that I wanted to create - a watercolor background with a bokeh design. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." The bokeh effect in this project is very subtle. I used Hero Arts unicorn pigment ink which is my favorite white ink. I used watercolor paper and a regular paint brush and an aqua painter to apply the colors, but I didn't like how light the colors were so to add some bold colors, I applied the ink directly to the paper and then softened the lines with a wet brush. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
