Pansies



Two watercolours today.  I usually use gouache in my flower studies, but I have always wanted to master them in pure watercolour.  So I thought I would practice today and this is the result.  It was hard not using white but with a bit of practice I think I will get there.



Not a 100 per happy with them, but they will make nice postcards for my give away.  I have heaps of these flowering in my garden at the moment, only polyanthus and pansies seem to flourish in our winter.  Although I noticed that some jonquils were starting to bud up.

Last week’s give away winner was Christine at Christines Blog,  I have left my email address on her last post, so Christine choose 2 postcards from the postcard page and email me your snail mail address and I will send them off to you. 
 
If you want to win some postcards leave a comment and you will go into the draw.
Have a happy creative week everybody.

Linking to Sunday Sketches.

  6. Beautiful, Sharon! Pansies are some of my favorites. I know what you mean about it being hard not using white. I love the white of the page so much but I often go too far and have to add some back in. Always a challenge!
