Today I tried something a little different - watercolour without first tracing the painting in pencil. It was interesting to experiment like this, and quicker... But I found myself wanting to outline things in paint then fill them in. Not exactly the best effect. (I didn't pre-outline the two little buds, and I like them best of all.) I will have to try this out some more!
This is a dahlia, by the way... Hope you're all having a nice weekend!
