The Scent of Spring

Scent of Spring, 6.5 x 8" watercolor on Yupo paper 
©2015 Helen Read 


Its nearly here!  The spring bloom of apple trees... I can't wait! 
I love the beautiful pink and white blooms and the smell is pretty indescribable!
This little botanical is created with watercolor and it's done on the very smooth Yupo paper that doesn't absorb water.  The unusual pooling pattern you see in the painting is from the way the water and pigment evaporate on the surface.
