AMERICAN LOTUS - WATERCOLOR WET

Well, I was just going to put in the darks and then post again but I liked what I was doing so did more. And then I put some light colors on the petals and removed the miskit. This is where it stands right now and I'm enjoying it so far.



Ready to call it a day on this and maybe pick it up again tomorrow.


And Smudge wants me to share this handsome photo of him...stretched out in the sunroom and watching me photograph the blushing magnolia and asking, "Why are you still working on that painting, Mom, instead of petting me?"

Hi Rhonda, very interesting. The backround has good color very wet on wet? Is that the gret white shape?

Hi Smudge,
Hope you're getting at least a little attention thru all this! Tell Rhonda that it's looking VERY VERY good!!!!!! Yummy, delicious, even better than chocolate. Looking forward to the next post.

Cathy, we began this with the Great White Shape but then I veered off when putting in the darks and did more darks and shapes. I'm hoping this turns out...so far, so good!
Hey, Sandy, Smudge says, Meowwwww :) Better than chocolate - never!!! But I appreciate the comment :)

Smudge, you are totally handsome. Yes, your Mom needs to stop everything and snuggle you. Oh. the flowers are really beautiful, too.

Thanks, Jane - Smudge would thank you, too, but he's a cat and never thanks anyone!

That's looking really beatiful Rhonda - looks wet, the #1 thing in watercolor. You get better everyday, take no prisoners!

Thanks, Nick :) I may have something more to post on this later today - after our watercolor society meeting this morning. I tried to stay wet wet wet!
