This painting was just accepted in the
2014 Florida Watercolor Scoiety Online
juried exhibit.  

What makes it different in approach is that
I started painting a horizontal composition
of flowers.  I then turned the painting
vertical and painted a different floral
composition "on top" of the first painting.
Using opaque watercolors and negative
shapes I created very unique floral shapes
with unexpected color combinations.

It was great fun and mostly unplanned so
I needed to be opened to the painting telling
me what to remove and/or add with many
layers in between.

Flower Fancy, watercolor transparent
