hydrangea bouquet progress

(I figured out how to make a circular watermark!)

slow progress on my newest painting.
That's just the way I paint.

I photographed it against the wall that it's going on in my living room.
The blossoms are all in cobalt, cerulean & a mix of the two.
I think I'm going to be happy with the finished painting.  Still a way to go, though.

 I never paint on an easel, always flat or on a slight incline on my table. 
This is a full sheet of watercolor paper stapled onto Gatorboard...bulky to deal with.
I was tired of wrestling with it on my painting table so I brought 
everything into the sun room to work on the bigger table.
Still not right until I propped it on the cat tower.


Jack meowed at me several times but then settled into a chair.

I still don't like standing up to paint.
Maybe this will hurry me along.
