Watercolor Florals

So I have been playing with watercolor flowers, too.  I haven't numbered them, but maybe I should start.  I think I'm up to about 20...

This is a lettering piece I did yesterday.  It felt like everything was going wrong...  Not perfection at all, but good practice, and I'm showing it anyway.

The rest of these are practice pages in my watercolor journal.

With most of these, I have been looking at others' work for ideas.  I try to riff off what I see and make it my own.  I am just trying to get some loose techniques figured out.

I think I am starting to get it...

After a wintery day yesterday, the sun is shining today.  Spring will be here in earnest soon, and I will be out in the garden everyday.  Hopefully then I can start painting some real flowers!


  1. I like these, Katie. I especially like your roses. You are thinking about "looseness" much better than I am.

  2. Really beautiful! The roses are wonderful but so are the leaves and buds.
