Yesterday’s flowers didn’t turn out exactly as I had planned, and neither did these. They’re actually loose studies of flowers I photographed while visiting Crowley Nursery and Garden near where I live. I don’t even know the name of the actual flowers, and I didn’t paint with a close reference to the photo, only with it in mind. The actual photo I took looked like a finished watercolor, which is a good thing (wow, I could paint that!) and a bad thing (why paint that? the photograph is enough). Let’s just say it’s a challenge in the back of my mind while just trying to have fun. If I were to paint from the actual photograph as I would see it in a watercolor version, I envision it being much larger and taking much longer than just one day in a month for a Worldwide Watercolor challenge. So perhaps that is a later project? I think tomorrow I will tackle something besides flowers. I am flowered out for a bit, even though you know flowers are one of my absolute favs to paint, draw, photograph, grow, you name it!
