White Flowers Watercolor Painting

This is another watercolor painting I did in my love/hate Tuesday class last October.  I have no idea what kind of flowers those are — I found the picture in an Arizona magazine the instructor brought in.  My Aunt Trisha identified them, but I have since forgot what kind they are.

Anyway, I am really pleased with how this painting turned out!  I think this is the first class I attended, and the teacher hovered over me the whole time, anxious to provide feedback and instruction.  I had forgotten a pencil that day — only had a black pen, and so even though my drawing is imperfect, I like how the ink defines the flowers.  Anyway, eventually it became evident to the teacher that I had painted before, and she eased up after that, which made me glad — I do not take hovering well.

    P.S. I hate hovering teachers too! I remember on my driver’s test the total torture of a “teacher” who was constantly there critiquing every single thin you did or didn’t do. It was the worst. Not exactly the same situation, but I guess its that feeling of the unblinking critical eye pinned on you…

    Love it! I really like the gold and purple palette.
