This one was entirely experimental, trying to capture the feeling of hydrangeas, with loose watercolors. It didn't turn out as nicely as I had hoped, but if someone likes it... There is a touch of pastel here and there. The watercolor has possibilities,so I'll try this again.

The challenge this week in DPW (Daily Paintworks) is sunflowers, so I used the provided reference very loosely, and swished a watercolor. My watercolor brushes are still buried in a box somewhere, but I had a few soft and clean oil brushes, so I used those.
Welcome to my daily painting blog. Here I'll post my efforts to paint one small painting a day, with a little wiggle room by saying five per week. I work primarily in oils these days, but also love my watercolors. I hope you enjoy my work, and as always, your comments are welcome.
