I like to pick a few wildflowers when I’m at the lake so that I can study and paint them in watercolor.
I found Common Tansy and Common Yarrow wildflowers yesterday at the lake. They may be common in name but not common for me to paint!
I tried to paint them loosely and then added a few details with a BROWN micron pen to change things up a little.
I struggled with painting the Birch bark so I realize it looks a bit strange. 😉
Here is a photo of what I was trying to paint:
I like the burst of red from the cherry, how about you? I thought it was a good way to end #World Watercolor Month as today is the last day to celebrate – thanks Charlie at doodlewash.com for making it such a fun month!

Remember this watercolor painting from yesterday?
Well, I kept adding more layers of watercolor to it and outlining the colorful shapes with my black micron pen (02 size).
And this is what I got:
It no longer looks like clouds but tree bark!
Could it be a Cedar Tree?
Or perhaps a White Pine?
I don’t know but it was very fun to do!
