Change of pace

After all that time on my last Venetian painting, I badly needed a change of pace. Like Ann Buckner I followed the super watercolor petal workshop by Ruth on Painting Friends. I used  Arches 140 CP and W&N paints. I think that this would have been a good time to use the bright white Fabriano in either the CP or HP.  I am fairly pleased with the petals, but the background ended up rather muddy.

  2. Thank you, Nora, for stopping by.
    I really enjoyed Ruth's great demo. It is good to get out of one's comfort zone once in a while.
