It Went Downhill...

I continued on with the flower drawing that I showed you a couple of days ago. I liked the drawing and should have quit while I was ahead. Instead I decided to add color...bad idea!
I truly messed it up!

You can see at the bottom where I "tried out" different colors for the leaves. Didn't like any of them but I used the one lime color anyway. The flowers look terrible and I've just lost interest in this piece...which is weird because I used to do nothing but watercolored flowers! Below are some of my oldies...





These are from back in the 90's. I have a lot more but I couldn't find them this morning. But you get the idea. Flowers were the only thing I drew for a long time. And I added color to them. What happened??!! 

Maybe I'm just not interested in flowers anymore. It did seem like I was forcing myself to do them. Sometimes it's good to challenge myself to do something different but then other times it doesn't work...it looks forced. That's what happened here. So I'll do more flowers if the mood strikes me and if not, then you may not see anymore!!

Have a great weekend!!
