hydrangea in purple


Loving the new Lavender watercolour from Daniel Smith.  Might have to try out the new Wisteria  as well.  hydrangea phase of painting is a nice break from birds.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Painting roses for a change


Painting roses in full bloom - wet on dry technique.  Allows for lots of control and you can add layer upon layer of glazes once the first layer is dry.


Rose buds - wet on wet technique.  A softer overall result but far less control.
