I love painting flowers that have just about reached their last stage. These daisy's were just about ready to wilt. I set my easel up near the kitchen counter. I started with an under painting in watercolor. I laid in both hard and soft pastel to finish it up. I also let parts of the under painting peek through. I am exploring color more and I like it. The surface is Fisher 400 art paper. It was created by someone in the UK. It is similar to Uart paper.
