Clematis Step by Step (Day 1)


Clematis 22" x 30" (Full Sheet Watercolor)
Step 4
All the petal and leaves have a first layer of color.  The dark
shapes come  next. Love painting the high contrast with that
spring sunshine.  This photograph was taken at my mother-in-laws
this past Spring.  Her pride and JOY!

Work in Progess.....hope to finish this week.
