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.
