A Mother's Day Bouquet
Pastel Pencil and Watercolor
(Daler Rowney 98 lb, Acid Free Pastel Paper)
Here is a bouquet of Mother's Day Flowers. I don't think I know one women who does not love flowers, and always enjoys recieving them on Mother's Day and truthfully any day of the year!
This was an interesting painting. It has been quite a while since I have worked with Pastel Pencils. (I believe the last one was my rendering of The Corn Poppy (interestingly named after the flower) by Dongen c. 1919). Working with Pastel Pencil and watercolors gave this painting an interesting effect. And because it is paper for pastels, the watercolors were gingerly applied.
