Nature as Inspiration

JAPANESE MAPLE LEAVES

I love nature...animals, plants, trees. They provide a neverending supply of inspiration for me. I chose this watercolor as my first work posted because of the vibrant colors and the fact it turned out so well! This was also my first experience using Daniel Smith's Greengold. What a color!

I was wondering if this would be your first post Billie. It is just wonderful and sets a very high standard for your blog. Looking forward to seeing your color charts too. Before you know it you will be a pro at this thing called blogging.

While checking out your new blog, I took a quick glance at this nice "photo" of a Japanese maple. As I read your comment, it took a moment for it to click that this is a watercolor! It's just beautiful, but I've seen you make a roll of TP look beautiful. Can't wait to see more!
