Blue Delphinium


Still playing with watercolors, ala Carla Sonheim. The class is officially over, however I'm still having fun working on the various techniques. I love being able to go back and re-watch the instructional videos. I always find some new little tidbit that inspires me all over again.

This piece still needs another layer of transparent color and a tiny bit of touch up and detailing. More to come soon. :)


Sharing with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin. Also sharing with Artists in Blogland.
