‘Basket of Summer’ watercolor on paper 9×12 CheyAnne Sexton
This was my first attempt without drawing it out first. Plein air painting from my easy chair looking out into my garden. I did lay down some misket (I love that stuff). And my kinda first attempt at multi-petaled flowers too. Not so sure how to go about them. I really like a few of them tho, especially the one on the bottom right and how it’s hanging in the air. At least that’s how it looks me.
I went to youtube to do some research and found a great 2 part video that inspired me to finish when I got stuck.
Painting Flowers Loosely in watercolour part 2 of 2 by Peter Wood
I watched the number 2 part of this first and then went looking for number one. I love how he adds dabs and dabs of little bits of color to create depth and vibrance to his painting. And what an undertaking to paint such a garden as this. I want to try this now.

Here is my second much freer attempt:
‘White cosmos over Orange’ watercolor on paper 9×12 CheyAnne Sexton
This one I didn’t draw or even add misket too, which I am pretty proud of. I just started at the top and worked my way down. When white of the paper was there I created another flower or a bud. Now I’m off to try more.
Both originals are for sale and giclee prints upon request. If you click the picture it ought to take you straight to my Etsy store where you can purchase them. Let me know you found it here and I will pay for shipping.
