12x9 watercolor work in progress or WIP, on 140 lb cold press paper, a new support I bought last week in Florida at Michael's arts and crafts store. These three freehanded cosmos blooms are from my own studio flowerbeds that were so lovely before the drought. Now all that I can get are a few roses and hollyhocks. The fun in rendering white subjects is all the unexplored color nuances within each shape that the artist can hunt for then paint. Stay tuned for the finish!
