Quite some time now I was looking to have some changes in the way I handle watercolor, to have more freedom and let more the medium work for me (so called happy accidents). I was about to get rid of some roses that were in my vase for some time, when I saw this little bud with some petals and a "dry" pink color.
I place it on a white paper, then took a big brush (I know, no.10 is the small brush of others!) and started to directly put paint on the paper. Now it is my favorite of the series!
