Lisanthius In Watercolor by Linda McCoy

Day four of the Daily Painters "Tribute to a Beautiful Earth"
Day three I was out enjoying the beautiful earth, and did not post. This past Saturday I was at Findlay Market in Cincinnati. There is a lot to take in there, but these flowers commonly known as "Bluebells" really caught my eye. They also come in purple, lavender and white. When I went to set them up to paint, I put them in a vase and fully intended to paint them that way. Fooling around with the composition I took a few out of the water and placed them in the shadows created by the lanky stems in the vase. That really captured my attention as I found the abstract shapes interesting. It is 7"X7" watercolor on Winsor Newton Paper
