Flowers!

I'm delighted to be taking Carla Sonheim's FLOWER CRAZY online class. We're in our second week, and have played with some fun techniques... this week is gesso and watercolor.
Here are a couple I have in progress...
Step One 
Step Two
Step 3... shading still to come! 

We're now in the middle of a "white out" painting... 
White out - a few layers in...

More on this soon! We get our lessons in increments, and I'm excited to see what happens with this one.


Sharing with the artists at Paint Party Friday. Thanks Eva and Kristin for hosting us each week.

Isn't it fun, after seeing all the color around us as Spring starts to bloom, to honor the garden with such gorgeous colors? Your work inspires me to paint more flowers. Thanks for sharing these vibrant pieces.
