11x15 watercolor on Bienfang 140 lb cold press paper drawn yesterday starting with the cosmos centre and few greens, then finished today. I used a #12 round Escoda brush from Cheap Joe's that is rapidly becoming a favorite. It makes a very sharp line with its tip. These pink cosmos were part of my studio garden about 6 years ago and I took tons of photos to use later. For this painting, three different images were combined. I really like the withered bloom lower left and new one about to open on the right lower side. Background is totally imaginary.
