Painting flowers in watercolour is so difficult. The last thing you want is for them to be stiff and dry-looking and full of picky little details. So I have been trying to treat them as a mass instead of painting each blossom individually. The other thing you want to have is some stems and some leaves to connect them, but in this horizontal format the leaves were a mile away. This is my practice from today.
