I found a photo of an azalea garden and it so reminded me of my 20 years of living in Charleston. I attempted a simple (HA HA) watercolor. The 'lighter' version I did first, smearing it as I scanned it. After spending too much time trying to FIX it, I'm going to LEARN from it (the darker version)! LOL If I did it over, which I will soon, I'd use a lighter touch, add more white space!!!, and lighten the background so it doesn't look so gloomy. I did learn, though, that I have a tendency to 'blot' on the watercolor -- and that smoothing it makes for a finer image.
