Graded and Varigated Washes

I'm finally getting a chance to 'play' with my watercolor assignments. I've done two washes - flat and graded - on Fabriano 140# cold process -- seemed to do very well! The tree was done on a graded wash on hot pressed paper -- MUCH more difficult. (Tree painted with Micron brush). The flowers were created after a few varigated washes. I sketched the flower based on the shape of the wash. FUN!

I love the spontaneity and bold lines of your flowers!

Yes, me too and the colours are wonderful! Haven't managed to see your blog with our poor connection until now - wow, so much to see, a real treat!

I like the idea of the wash first then deciding what flower fit the wash. Sounds fun. Did you take Kate's class on line of in person? I am thinking about taking it on line as I don't have the time for a "show up" class.
