One of the bulbs I planted in November 2011 were "Muscari". They appear now all over the garden. In the attempt to make a "loose" watercolour, I tried to capture the "essence" of the flower, the feeling I have when I observe it.

What I learned was that I have to use much more water than I usually do. And I'm not sure if I really want to do "loose" watercolours. When I think about painting plants, I normally like the "botanical painting" approach. Well, I' ll take it as a kind of experiment.

Illustration Friday

I participate the first time in Illustration Friday and made an illustration for their theme "vocal" for this week. I had fun, but  "illustration" means something different as "watercolour".
