Watercolored bouquet...


I did this watercolor of a bouquet of flowers picked from my gardens around Memorial Day.  I always love to have fresh flowers sitting around and if they come from my gardens, that makes me even happier. 
I take lots of photos of my flowers, knowing that I they make great pieces of art to frame or stick in a clipboard.  I had the idea that I'd like to paint many of the photos too so I'm glad I snapped lots...especially when there is not a flower to be seen in my gardens right about now.
I sketched out my photo first in pencil.  I will always have a love of drawing.
Then I just filled in colors kind of like a coloring book.
I love doing color studies to match colors to my photos too.  I'm much better at doing that with watercolors than other paint mediums.
I'm now inspired to create a little stash of flower photos to practice my watercolors on.  

Thanks for the inspiring words on my art journey recap thus far. It's fun to visit all of my projects again.
