Modern Botanical Watercolors - What a Blast!

This project was A LOT OF FUN for me.  I have not painted with watercolors since maybe middle school.  It was quite magical.  The first painting, the monstera leaf, reminded me of a recent trip to Key West. So I decided to paint a series of 3.  A few little mess-ups but still I love them. Modern Botanical Watercolors - What a Blast! - image 1 - student project
