Watercolour Wednesday: Purple Flower

I have a new, shiny flower for you for this Watercolour Wednesday. Know why a flower? They're less complicated than people, lol! I got two new journals by Stillman&Birn, the Zeta and Beta in 5.5x8.5. This is a very good size for me. Not too much paper to fill. To christen my new Zeta journal I drew this flower and took it travelling with me last weekend to Arizona on our camping trip along with a small Koi travel watercolour set. Which, by the way, it totally awesome. When I got home, this piece half finished, I found that a very kind friend of mine on my message board had sent me 10 pots of Twinkling H2Os after I mentioned wanting some Twinks to play with, but attempting to hold off on purchases. The colours were perfect to add some depth and shine to this piece and I'm SO happy with it now. The Twinks are just wonderful and I think, at some point, I will just need to own them all. I'm in love! I'll definitely need more work on my flowers, and to attempt to be able to draw bigger. I lean so much towards small and delicate things, but I don't intend to write in these as an art journal so there's really no need to leave too much space.

I hope you like this post and I hope to be able to share with you many more projects, including using the Twinks more as well!
