    Okay, here's one from me. My husband and I like to watch a bunch of Twilight Zone episodes over New Year's, when there's usually a marathon going on. I got inspired by one of the images the program opening flashes at the viewer. Couldn't help myself! :lol:

    Here's today's practice. I was building up color and depth with multiple washes. You can still see the pencil lines from the initial sketching.

    These are beautiful! I'd say your buildup was very successful here, especially with the top daylily. I love me some black-eyed Susans, too. Love that subtle little wash of blue around it. Very nice!

    Here's another fairly recent one.

    Just playin'. I was originally thinking the woman would be blowing off flower petals, but realized cats would be so much better. :icon_mrgreen:

    Oh, I also meant to comment that the pencil lines you mentioned don't bother me at all. I think they give a subtle bit of outline, which I like. There's only one I'm seeing on the Susans that's going a bit horizontally.

    I think flowers (and landscapes in general) are my favorite subjects in watercolor. :boogie:
