Still Painting!

 
 

This is what I did last night. I loved it. I'm not trying to praise myself. I just like it alot. Maybe its the colors or the way the paint took to the paper. Watercolor is a lot like this. It has its own energy and movement so it is always somewhat of a surprise what you get. I've always loved surprises. Have a great day!

So beautiful and natural, the watery style is very nice. Did you soak the paper first before painting, or just add lots of water when applying the colors?

Hi, Vuejardin. Thank you for your comments about Lavender flowers. Did I soak the paper? Well, no. I find I can't control the effects well enough if I do, but as I added the color with water, sometimes it will pool, regardless, and it did a bit, then I let it dry and then continued painting, adding more color. A piece of paper towel also helps. I usually use one particular brush but for this painting I used several.
