"Daisies" is a watercolor done in the "Ink and Wash" technique.  Ink is used to delineate the flower petals and some of the shaded areas, and the watercolor washes are applied after that.  Some artists reverse the process, painting first and then using ink but it's just a matter of choice.  I was fortunate to win a watercolor award with this piece.  Painted on Arches watercolor paper, this painting measures 11 3/4" wide by 8 3/4" high.
Hope you enjoy it!

Amy's Bouquet

A simple summer bouquet cut from the garden of a friend ,(who just happens to be a master gardener), was given to me recently.  I loved the unusual combination and simplicity in the glass jar.  Hope you enjoy it.
This watercolor is 6 3/8" high  x 7 7/8" wide and is painted on Arches 140# watercolor paper.
