Almond Blossoms in Crystal Vase 2015 The Watercolor Art Making Process

Almond Blossoms in Crystal Vase 2015

These blossoms don’t last a long time on the tree; in fact, they have already blown away.  I was only able to do two watercolors of these blossoms this year.  This is the second watercolor.  I did both of them on the same day.  They each took about 5 hours to paint.

I'm still painting upwardly, finding a place where the blossoms are in space.  I'm also marking the branches at the same time.

I’m finishing up with the detail and putting in washes where I see shade.
