Sunflower Poured Ink and Watercolor

Poured Ink and Watercolor Sunflower
This is the finished product.  Below are some of the steps of this process.

Here is the sunflower drawn with edges and highlights masked.

I added yellow, red, orange and brown ink to the sunflower after wetting the surface of the flower only.

Here I have added green, yellow and blue to a rectangle around the flower after wetting the area with water.  I repeated the process for the light blue area.  Each time it must dry. 

Here is the painting with the mask removed.  The colors of the ink are really quite brilliant.

Here is the painting after adding some negative painting to suggest leaves.
