Grandma's Narcissus

I can remember looking at these heavily ruffled narcissus in my grandmother's garden.  I was very young, and still they bloom abundantly every spring.  The petals are so numerous, they can hardly be counted.  I first use my India ink to lay down the lines, then come in easily with watercolor and my water brushpen.  Sometimes those initial ink lines fade with the application of watercolor, so I darken a few of those lines with my ink at the end.  A little spreading is a bonus!  Painting number 1908 in 1908 days.
