These new paintings are really little, maybe 5" x 7". I used my Twinkling H2o's which are highly pigmented water colors with mica so they can be highly reflective and iridescent depending on the mica content. I used Joanne Fink's zen doodle book on flowers for some of the designs. Watercolors are so much more forgiving than acrylics which I feel very frustrated with at the moment. But I'm not giving up on them! Yet!
