Hydrangea Bouquet WIP

18x11.5 watercolor work in progress (WIP) begun a few days ago using only a 1" flat sable brush.  Sketched in pencil on wet Canson 140 lb cold press paper, I put in the varied greens in the background first, not the darks first I usually begin doing.  Next was pale pink and white hydrangea blooms followed by deeper pink and peach toned ones.  The old vase colors were actually two:  Blue Bice and Andrew's turquoise.  I was inspired by my own plants that have leafed out by the front door and am trying for a nice and soft floral arrangement.  Stay tuned for the finish.
