Christmasy Watercolor

I haven't done much more to the dog I posted about yesterday but wanted to post another watercolor that I did some time ago for an art exchange at a forum I belong to. I was rather pleased with this as it's all freehand without a preliminary drawing. I wished I'd added some more darks to the leaves but, overall, I think it came out pretty well.

Watercolor is really not my medium of preference most of the time although there are times when the work just sort of calls for it. This is one of those times when it all just seemed to come together and work!

The recipient has received it and seemed pleased - I hope so anyway!

Will post more on Heidi, the dog, when I've got more to post.

Poinsettias are nice and Christmassy aren't they? I'm sure she loved this.

Watercolours are on my 'to do' list. I had my first attempts earlier this year but had to put them away to get on with the 'proper work'. I do feel happier in control of pencils rather than brushes though :o)

I agree, Sue. Watercolors frustrate me sometimes. I like the look but they aren't always cooperative!
