Gorgeous Dors! I have never considered using watercolor paper for my coloured pencil or graphite. I will have to give it a try. You do such lovely work!

I miss the Birds of Paradise from my California home. Afraid they won't grow in Tennessee. :(

Thanks for your post on my blog. Sure has been cold. After a day of off and on snow squalls yesterday there is a yellow object in the sky and it is warm feeling.

These flowers are so inspirational, aren't they? You've rendered this one perfectly.

Dors said...

Thank you so much Deb. Yes they are Inspirational but when they are dieing off they can look very shabby.
