Ruby Tuesday watercolour

For Ruby Tuesday I have this painting of a coneflower.  It's not finished yet; I still have to do some refining and shading in the cone part.  But right now I'm liking the way the petals look--with just a touch of red, well pinkish red.

This is the second painting I've been working on in my water colour class.  I am learning a lot there but I still have a way to go to master the water colour medium.

You can see many other Ruby Tuesday posts here.

  6. I love it! I must have strange eyes...I'm always drawn to the unfocussed flowers in the background. They give such depth and another layer of interest.

  7. I absolutely love your watercolours! Keep up the good work!

  8. I love this watercolour painting, Joanna. You have captured the flower's essence beautifully. I also love the diffused background. I shall look forward to seeing the finished picture. It already looks really lovely.


I really appreciate your comments.
