#WorldWatercolorGroup Favorite Flower

IMG_20160803_084900#WorldWatercolorGroup  Favorite Flower is the prompt for today.  Being a retired florist and avid gardener I love all flowers but if I had to pick one it would have to be tulips.  Perhaps because to me they signify the end of winter and the coming of spring.  After a long winter warmer sunny days are always welcomed by me.  Cutting bundles of tulips from the garden and having vases of them about the house, bliss!!

For this #WorldWatercolorGroup sketch I did not pre-draw anything preferring to keep everything where the paint brush took me.  One thing led to another so splattering and smiles ensued.  My pink tulip is in the middle of a spring rain.  That’s my story and I am sticking to it.  Original art by Susan Feniak.  Holdbein Artists’ water color on Strathmore 140lb cold press paper.

I will be on hiatus for most of the month.  But I will try to catch up whenever possible.  Have fun!! Cheers.  PEACE

    This is so pretty and I didn’t even realize flowers was the prompt for today but I haven’t really been following the list anyway. Here I am coloring out of the lines again
    Hoping your hiatus is a vacation. Enjoy!

  9. Spring rain looks great from here! Lovely thoughts, and painting!

    My favorite flower …toss up between a Hydrangea and a Peony. I doubt I could paint either as well as you your tulip.
