Another watercolor! This one is for the same friend-to-be-married - for her bridal shower card. I am really liking the low maintenance of the materials. I needed to draw up some flowers, so I went to the internet for reference. I combined a couple different images to get what I wanted, then traced over them in Photoshop to get a line drawing, which I then taped to my light table. There were moments while painting where I felt like I was totally rocking it, others, not so much. I got to experiment with some line overlays and color adjustments after the "real" work, until I was happy with the results.
