Folk art decorated butterflies and flowers

Thank you so much Julia for this great class. My first on skillshare and my very first time using watercolors. This class was quiet clear with perfect explanations and examples. 

I struggled a bit with the fine brush and the fine lines, often it's too brought, it was frustrating, I didn't manage the right pression but I just have to practice. I made a mistake on the yellow butterfly by not adding enough water to my watercolor paint. It was too thick and shiny after drying and I wasn't able to add gouache stripes and dots on it, the paint crinkled. Plus I used a cheap gouache what wasn't a good thing to do. 

But for my first try in watercolors and folk art drawing I like the result and I think this will make a nice greetingcard for Easter. Vielen Dank liebe Julia !
