Chrysanthemum, Watercolor by Linda McCoy

The Cincinnati area was hit hard by winds generated by Hurricane Ike. Fortunately the rain didn't come with it. We lost power for several days so I started a few watercolors I could work on during daylight hours. It was so quiet without power! All I could hear was the sound of the wind chimes, birds and the kids having a great time playing. This one is a little larger than usual, 10" X10" Watercolor on Sennelier paper.

very impressive use of watercolours.. You have used both the delicacte as well as the more solid use and that makes a nice contrast between the background and the flower and makes it come out beautifully

Thanks Rachel, glad you like. Maybe the power should go out more often! Ok, well maybe not!
