Forget Me Not!

Since I was gone this weekend attending my niece's wedding in Cleveland, I have not had a lot of time to paint...so...I did this little piece this afternoon - 5" x 6". It is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Canson 100 watercolor paper. The background of the flowers was done wet into wet and you can see that the colors of the flowers are not confined to the flower shapes themselves. The area between the flowers was done as negative painting and the shadows and leaves were added last.

I like the looseness of the colors is this. It is very springlike.
