Watercolor Flower

orange lily watercolor painting

I have been working on this for the past week and it didn't turn out quite the way I wanted.  I'm naturally better at oil paints and since watercolors are the exact opposite of oils, it is taking me a while to get used to painting this way.  I tend to overwork the watercolors and not leave enough white space.  But, enough of the personal critique- it turned out ok anyway.  I can usually save a watercolor painting by adding some black ink in there.  I think I'll try another watercolor flower soon!
