 These two are my newest brush time experiments. I'm always moving from medium to medium and still haven't figured out which is truly my favorite to work with.  I recently read that brush time is meaningful when we are working toward becoming adept at a particular technique.  I start that way, finish following where the image takes me, and end up learning something I didn't intend.  Here, I was practicing with the pencils and discovered I enjoy depicting flowers with watercolor.  Acrylic paint attempts never ceased to fail......
 This is a depiction of an actual amaryllis I had growing in my living room last winter.....rendered from a photo.
They both are rendered from watercolor pencils I bought a while back and finally decided to use.  The bouquet is a copy of an image from the box the pencils came in.

Watercolor is so much fun to use you may find yourself craving the use of your pencils more.
