4. Use the watercolor pencils and colored felt-tip pens to add color to the stamped image. Color the bridge red and add green to the trees. Use purple and orange to add some “flowers” to two trees. Add different shades of blue and purple to the water. Add a dash of red in the water below to walking bridge to imitate a reflection of the bridge in the water. Add a dash of yellow just below the ducks, to imitate the reflection of the ducks in the water. Lastly, use dark blue to create shadows to bring the picture to life.
