This is the same still-life that I recently posted, but in the evening. Wet on wet technique.
Wild Flowers in Pickle Jar is one of the watercolors from a spring series that I’m painting. Spring is my favorite time of year because there is a special light, color and interesting forms and shapes everywhere.
I always start with my favorite part.
Then I build everything around it.
As I’m painting, I want to get it in one shot and stop when the paper is covered.

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.
