Watercolor Flowers – Happy Spring!

4 Comments

Lately, I can’t stop painting flowers. I think I’m just very happy Spring is here! Before flowers, I was painting fruit. lol! In the past I was intimidated by flowers. Now, I am getting into it. My first (recent) attempts were more graphic, less realistic.

Today, I worked hard to get the flower to look like the actual flower. I’ve been loving working in watercolor again!

  1. The petal layering on your gerbera daisy is very natural! I like it!

  2. Indeed a compliment! I always find that if I don’t try to be exact and precise, it ends up falling into place. You’ll see that when you keep practicing, your own style will shine through. No need to be exact… Long petals an all! It is lovely.
