Hydrangeas -- Opaque Watercolor/Gouache
This is my first attempt at trying to paint Hydrangeas. I love them. They are one of my favorite flowers (after roses). This was also my first attempt at trying to paint a picture I completely made up out of my head. Found out also that it is easier to paint from a photo, as the highlights and shadows are there to copy. Here I had to make them up, and with limited success. It's not a masterpiece, but it was still fun-- I was playing with paint.
