The Painting Begins


My good friend, Mary Woodul sent me a beautiful photo of a cactus flower. I'd love to do this flower justice with watercolor. I'm doing a few trial and error paintings, this one being my first attempt. I'm experimenting with colors while trying to keep the values accurate. I can see I have much more work to do.
