Country Roses Progress

I haven't made much progress this week, and I probably won't until the weekend. This is where I am now:

This painting is turning out to be more difficult than I thought it would be, or even than it should be. I didn't realize, until after I painted the background, that I drew the picture on the wrong side of the watercolor paper-- rookie mistake. The paint just doesn't move, blend, and lift as well as it does when painting on the right side of the paper. Needless to say, it's quite frustrating.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Modern Floral Watercolor 5

I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.
