5 Minute Flowers

Martha Lever had two tutorials up on YouTube called 5 Minute Watercolor Flowers which I stumbled upon the other day.  Regrettably I'm not sure what happened to the videos (they're now gone)...and regrettably I just watched (quickly) the first video, but I'm absolutely addicted to doing these little watercolor flower paintings with my big girl watercolors (Windsor & Newton Cotman watercolors).  I've learned to mix purple from alizarin crimson and ultramarine...yay!  I'm using these little paintings as bookmarks...can you tell I love purple flowers?

Spring is in the air!  Allen and I planted two Columbine plants today in our new sunny bed.  Our whole yard is shade except for this new bed where we took out the wood pile last year. 

These little watercolors were done on scraps of Fabriano Artistico 90 pound hot press paper with Cotman watercolors and doodled with Micron pens.
