Garden Impatiens, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", Watercolor on Arches coldpress paper

Watercolor is not my friend.  It is an elusive medium that I struggle with, yet I still play and attempt to come up with something acceptable.  These paintings started out as one, yet together they did not work.  So, the scissors came out, and voila! I now have two little paintings.  I liked the simplicity of design and the transparency of the layering in these, they aren't fussy which I find difficult to achieve with watercolor.
