These are my first three paintings. I only recently started with watercolor again. Lately I was more into abstract painting with gouache, acrylics and oil pastels. (btw that's my own Skillshare class: Mark Making With Everyday Objects).
I started with the walnut leaf since I figured it would be the easiest. I painted two segments for each leaf and added the thin veins with an acrylic marker.
The hibiscus from my garden was my second piece and since there where larger areas I had trouble finishing each segment before the paint dries. I also had a few water puddles which dried up in blooms.
I love it how you get better with practice. I felt that I already had a lot more brush control when painting this rose.
The next one is a plane tree leaf I had collected last autumn.
This one is the blossom of bee balm (Monarda fistulosa) a fascinating plant. I really love how this one turned out.
Those are Persian buttercups and they are definitely one of my favorite flowers.
