I am spending the winter in Beaufort, S.C. While working in my journal from a photo taken last summer in Michigan, I painted these happy sunflowers.
I transfered the design to some handmade, 300 lb. watercolor paper that I had been wanting to test. It certainly worked different than anything I have ever used. Soaked up the water and paint like a sponge. I love to use lots of water so it worked OK for me.
I think they are rays of sunshine during a dark and rainy winter here. Hope you're enjoying making your own sunshine where ever you.
