watercolor on mounted Arches Cold Press (Art Board)
I played around a lot with the composition on this one. I wanted it off center, but I also wanted there to be some interest in the background that draws the eye. I was a bit worried that the background and the focal flower would compete too much. It's a tight balance. This was the first time I tried the self adhesive board from Art Board. I wanted to see if the Arches Cold Press would be different if I adhered it myself. It was a little different, but not by much, so I'll probably go back to using their pre-mounted Cold Press.
Reference photo was taken on September 26. Again on the terrace. And again, I don't know the name of these little yellow flowers.
