Dahlia painted on 9 x 12 Arches with M Graham and W/N watercolors. Dahlia's are so much fun to paint! Thanks to TeAnne for the great reference photo!
Your comments are always appreciated!

Thank you for your comments Char and Barb! Char... the background is painted with two coats of M Graham Phthalocyanine Green. Barb..I'm raising african violets..and have quite a few plants..so I've been busy with them. I have to make time for my art too though...I was having withdrawals big time! :)

Great to see you again, Marcia! This is very dramatic! How about a crop?

Thanks for your comments Ruth! It's good to see you also. The crop looks good.. although the matting and frame will crop it too. :)
