I used the watercolor first, and then the Ink, but I guess it could have been done the other way. There is often no “right” way to do a painting! This is also a time when I used a stamp for texture (upper right corner).
used sort of an abstract design for this watercolor/ink study.
The challenge here is the flower consisting of hundreds of tiny flowers!
I used a technique called negative painting in this watercolor
of leaves against a background of more and more leaves.
I am fascinated with different kinds of leaves, as my watercolors show. I often go out in the yard and look for leaves.
The next three paintings, in watercolor, will be of leaves.
