Hollyhocks Hurrah

1/2 sheet Italia 140 lb cold press, WN paints, of pink and red hollies seen blooming their last hurrah while recently in Prescott, Arizona.  No pencil drawing was done, brush only, and I added leaves, stems, and other shapes in the background.  Plain water was used with #12 brush to outline shapes then colors dropped in and allowed to mingle as watercolor should be.  Size is 15x22 inches.

Very nice. I like the freshness of it. No pencil, must be the trick!
