I decided that watercolor paints and ... ordinary table salt would be best for his drawing.
And I also need masking liquid and a synthetic brush

I apply masking liquid to the area where the flower will be depicted.

The result is such a sunny portrait of a flower that has made its way out from under the snow!
I hope that this drawing will add a good spring mood to you!
