It's going to be so pretty, with this palette and even more blue.

Love this little white fence! I agree with getting the drawing just the way you want it before reaching for those watercolors. It will make painting it easier. Good on you for doing this prep and planning.

I’m a little happier with my horizon and fence perspective in this ine but the flowers are too large I think.

Your flowers are larger on the left and getting smaller as the eye moves to the right, so your perspective looks good.

As far as being too large, that's artistic choice. ;) You can add green to show shrubbery under and around them, too, if you want. I think it looks interesting.

Have any of you ever tried alcohol inks? I am fascinated by this account on Flickr and considering giving this a try.

I got an email from Michael’s (arts and crafts store) that listed free classes. One was on using alcohol markers; I’m considering it.

I know there is a “gun” that allows these markers to be used as an airbrush.

Those can give you a lot of interesting looks. Could be fun!
