Tuscan Colored Holiday Spray

The other evening, Rebecca (B&B) and I shared our Christmas gifts. Along with the Tuscan Vase I sketched earlier this month, Rebecca found several sprays of holiday flowers to add to the vase that wer the same 'Tuscan' colors of the vase itself. So FESTIVE -- and my favorite colors!

When I got home last night and after spending a good amount of time unpacking (all those holiday events at work); I sketched one of the sprays. To give this watercolor a closer resemblance to the original, I added some 'gold roxx' -- a type of heavy glitter I used during my days of collage work. They sparkle in the light and really make the watercolor a mixed media ... but fun.

Today the group of local Karlyn Holman workshop attendees are getting together to paint .. so I'm off to play - yahoo! Sure need it after this week!

The rain is still with us, though the threat of severe weather remained nothing more than a threat, thank heavens, and cold temperatures have returned. Mercy, I did so enjoy temps in the 60s! LOL
