'Gillys Flower'

    This was painted from a reference photo on a website  forum that  I belong to  called JWJarts  .  click on to the  link to get there..   The name of the flower  is not in my head right now.. so I named it Gillys' Flower since she is the artist who posted it there.   Enjoy!       BJ

  4. Sherry, Really How?? Well, take a trip to Florida and I'll show you. I still have no clue as to what I do.. One thing I do now is move the paper around while the water is laying on top. Drop in color , move it around
    I use to paint very tight paintings, picky, picky, through the years I've been practicing letting the water work for me. , BJ
