Adding the background wash with a wet-in-wet technique using different shades of green and blue.
After the first wash has dried we need to evaluate if we need to add a second wash in some areas.
You can use a kneaded eraser of your fingers to remove the masking fluid. Use your rigger brush for painting the flower heads and don't try to be too exact about filling in the florets. Leave a few whites for highlights.

The luminosity of watercolors is what fascinates and draws me to this medium. I like creating textures and continually try to stretch the boundaries of watercolor. I experiment with materials and media to get the results I want.
My paintings are influenced by the shapes in nature and the beautiful surroundings of Northern California and by my previous life living in England, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
I studied painting at the Rhodesian School of Art in Zimbabwe and for four years in California with master watercolorist, Jerry Stitt, AWS. I live in Marin County, California which has many unspoiled coastal areas, nature parks and trails that inspire many of my paintings.
My art has been bought by people in the USA, Switzerland, South Africa and the UK.
