Get inspired by these watercolor dandelion paintings. With spring coming to an end and summer being just a couple of weeks away, this is the perfect time of year to get inspired by nature. That means painting beautiful flowers, trees, and more.

I think the dandelion flower gets a bad reputation. Mainly because most of us see it as being a stubborn weed that we can never seem to get rid of.

I’ve recently discovered that the dandelion actually has many health benefits, making it not so bad after all.

With my newfound appreciation of this flowering plant, I thought it would be fun to share a few beautiful dandelion watercolor paintings.


1. Dandelion Doodles

These doodles are perfect for learning how to paint the different parts of the dandelion. I also love the softness of the colors used for this painting.
