Remember the Nasturtium flowers I drew in my art journal last month? Well, I decided to try painting them loosely in watercolors this week.
I started with painting wet-into-wet on 140 lb cold press paper. You can see it in the photo on the left. It was a cloudy day so perfect weather for painting outside.
I had my trusty helper, Jack, close by:

I couldn’t leave it alone so I added a few color pencil details…
I didn’t like the look of the color pencils so I tried adding some watercolor pencils. But the more I fiddled with it, the more I disliked it. So I decided to give it a rest and come back to it later.
Here is one more photo for you to enjoy. I just love these bright orange flowers!
Wishing you a sunny Sunday and happy painting! 🙂
