Colorful Flowers Red Blue Green Orange

Lately, I’ve been learning how to use water colors.  I think water color paintings are beautiful and love the way the paint looks.  So, I was very excited when for my birthday, my lovely husband got me water color pencils!  Up until that point I had only used water color paint.

For those of you that don’t know, you can use water color pencils just like colored pencils or dip them in water.  When they’re dipped in water, the material acts like water color paint. Since, I was eager to try them out and wanted to see how they performed in pencil form and watercolor form, I made the following picture:

Since I liked how the picture came out, I thought it would be fun to make a digital version! Here’s how it turned out:
