We were traveling in May so I wasn't able to attend the monthly water color class. I missed it SO much! Then, when I went in for the June class, I was excited to see a colorful little flower study. Throughout school and many a meeting at my old job, I would doodle little flowers. Given that we had to draw this month's artwork from scratch, those doodles finally paid off.
I stayed pretty true to the original artwork by our teacher and didn't really vary my colors, either. I was somewhat unhappy with my little bee, but the rest I thought turned out great. (As always, especially when you see it across the room!)
It is living in a pretty little white frame on the mantel with our junk fairy and my grandma spider plant. Such a happy little piece. We drew it in pencil, outlined that in ink, and painted on the color with a mostly dry brush. I found that I really liked having the strong ink outline.
(On a side note, the grandma spider plant was one I planted from a tiny cutting off of my Grandma Klunk's plant. I brought the clipping home in a plastic cup from PA a few years ago. I'm so happy that it is doing so great. With any luck, it will have babies in the next year so that I can start some more plants off those. This plant really means a lot to me because Gram lives so far away and we only get to visit once a year.)
