Floral abundance - experimenting with new paper



This week, I've had a wonderful time visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Los Angeles. Among so many things, I got a morning at the arboretum. This little watercolor painting is still in progress, but you can see its progression in the 2 images.  More work is still needed, and will be done soon!  

The paper I used is much like Yupo.  Very smooth and does not absorb the paint.  Thus, the wet paint sits on the surface and the wet into wet effects are very interesting.  

I have dozens of reference pictures from this visit and lots of new ideas are forming!  I'll post more on this one soon!
