Flowers at the Kauffman Garden

Flowers at the Kauffman Garden
Watercolor on paper, 7x5
Today, my parents and I visited the Kauffman Memorial Garden in Kansas City.  It is a beautiful, peaceful place with several wonderful fountains and abundant blooms!  These beauties were basking in the sun, with the shade falling behind them.  It made for a peaceful and serene composition.  After first masking out the lighter areas, I underpainted the darker parts.  Rubbing off the mask, I went back in with my brush to add color to these lighter areas.  With a full day and a house full of family until now, I am painting and posting late tonight.  This one makes 562 in as many days.
