Delphinium

watercolor 28 x 8

I found this long sheet of watercolor paper in my flat files and thought what can I paint on this?? So I decided to paint a delphinium that I grow in my garden. This is one of my favorite flowers. I hope the winter wasn't too hard on them and that they come back this year. This is just the middle section of the painting. It is really long so it uploads really small. That is why I thought I would show just the middle section of it.
Today it was a lovely 64 degrees and it was sunny. Tonight it is supposed to get cold and snow. Now that is not my fault because I did not paint a snow scene today....but maybe tomorrow :)

Very nice and clean watercolor. Your flowers are so beautiful as your snow landscapes. I like it specially for its pure colors. Holbein, of course. I've changed to a germany mark, but I think my problem they are not the tubes, is my hand.
