How to paint a 3D Mexican Ivy flower in watercolor

If you’re choosing a flower to paint, look no further than the Mexican Ivy. This flower really has it all; a bell-shaped form, perfect for creating a 3D effect.

And this particular one has some visiting wildlife as a bonus. In this video, I’ll show you the process I followed to paint this most regal of flowers.
