A Gorgeous Rose in Watercolor


Hi Friends! It's been awhile since i've posted so i thought that i'd share how my watercoloring is coming along. I drew this gorgeous rose and watercolored it with my Winsor & Newton Watercolors. I think that this rose will make a beautiful card.
This was colored on 140# Cold Press Fabriano watercolor paper. 
I just love the colors!

Look at what i've painted now! A chubby looking Chickadee

 It's not perfect, but i'm sure loving doing it. lol!
I bought the Van Gogh palette of watercolors from a little shop here in my town that was going out of business for 50 percent off. They say that it's not the watercolor paints but the artist who creates a great painting. I really don't know but i do know that it isn't easy mixing colors for the color that you desire. It's going to take me a very long time to get the feel for that. I do know that a brush can make you or break you. I bought the Silver black velvet brushes in a few sizes and i really love those.
