How I Draw Magnolia Flowers | Ink & Wash | Lettering | No Pencil!

In this video I draw and paint, from start to finish, Saucer Magnolias. Directly with ink and no pencil usage. I also spend some time taking extra care that the watercolor painting is a bit more precise. The extra time taken with the watercolor process helps ensure the ink lines do not overpower the overall result since it is a slightly larger illustration where the ink lines are more visible.
