Watercolor flowers

I tried a small water color today… just lightly sketched and went over with the colors.. I usually have a tendency to do water color with a heavy hand…    I am learning that paper towels are your friend!! I like to blot off the color as it is wet and do several light layers instead   of that heavy first layer.. LOL…. slow learner but i like this look much better…. then when dry, I lightly outlined with my extra fine tip black marker…




These little quick sketches are good therapy!

Linked this weekend with Alexandra at Sunday Sketches

Have a great new week!
