Painting Lilacs

For a couple of afternoons a fellow artist and I were able to sneak away and paint lilacs that are starting to bloom at Ewing Park in Des Moines.  I tried to capture the beauty of the lilacs, but there is no way to illustrate the lovely smell of real lilacs.  One of my favorite parts of spring!

This week's assignment in John Preston watercolor class.  Kind of a challenging one.

2018 Day 29

I had trouble with restraint and control on this assignment.  Really loving working John Preston's watercolor class!

2018 Day 28

Last week's assignment for John Preston's watercolor class.  Pretty blobby, need to work on finessing the soft edges, for sure!
