Watercolor Flowers

Dahlia flower meaning:

wealth and elegance, and also a symbol for love.

This is dahlias that I have on my patio. Today I had a few minutes and got my watercolor paints and sat outside for awhile to capture it in real life.

I ended up taking a photo, because the bugs were biting and the sun was too hot.

Color Pencil Drawing

Today was a relaxing day, I did not have to go into the office to work. I spent the morning drawing a few sketches. I might make these into larger drawings.

I have been interested to draw lately. There are some changes happening in my life and drawing is peaceful and helps me to slow down.

Tools Used:

  • Faber-Castell color pencils
  • Strathmore colored pencil paper
  • Gamsol mineral spirits
  • Paint brushes
