"Turning Japanese"

6 x 6"
watercolor on aquaboard (Ampersand)

I'm back after a fabulous Thanksgiving vacation with family.  This painting went slowly due to all the details.  I'm pleased with branch lines that keeps the viewers eyes active.  I love how this aquaboard makes it easy to pull the whites out.

Reference photo was taken on September 26.  These are Japanese wind flowers.  They are located on the lower terrace.  It's fun watching them all sway together, but of course I like to zero in on the individual.
