Last week I mentioned that I had not been painting and was feeling out of sync. I thought I was going to paint that evening, but it didn't happen as planned. It was the next day and I think, by then, I was starved for color and for the fluid motion of watercolor. When it came time to do the background, I wet the paper and let fly with the color!

I tilted the paper to get the paint to move and then sat back to see what would happen. The difficult challenge on this piece was to put in the shadows on whitish-pink petals and still have them read as whitish-pink petals as well as to have the shadows look luminous and not too "heavy." It has been a fun and just what the doctor ordered! No more outta sync! This painting has also served to light the fire again and you can believe I'll be back in the studio tomorrow!
