This is something a bit different for me, in doing watercolor. I taped the edges and used the whole image area to paint in. With mask I protected the edges of the petals, and then floated in color wet-on-wet behind the flowers. It got a little rough and messy, so there was a lot of layering and lifting to do to the background after it all dried. But even though it's different for me, it's also kind of cool. Thanks for looking.
