Vintage postcard inspired watercolored flowers...

The past two weeks I've been enjoying Jeanne Oliver's classed called Reflections: Paint Your Story.  Today's art session was inspired by a video Jeanne posted about abstract flowers.  I used the vintage postcard shown below for my inspiration.  
 The sketchbook I'm using is a Dylusions small journal with a snippet of vintage ledger pasted on.  The papers aren't high quality watercolor paper but perfect for some sketching with paints.
 I used Pan Pastels to add the blue and yellow shading in the background.
 I'm loving the look of scribbly drawn lines with watercolor added.  Graphite will always be a favorite medium of mine.
 Soft and airy, such a good sketch for staying loose.
 A good day to make art.
Thanks for joining me today.
