Getting the color right wasn’t a problem BUT.. no matter what I did with those highlights – they weren’t bright enough. It just seemed that they would fade after the paint dried.. enter the pastels! It’s the only thing that saved this piece..

I love what I do and I do what I love.. been drawing for over 60 years now – I hope I’ve got it right.

    Barbara, not to take anything away from your gorgeous animal art, but your floral closeups like this one are among my personal favorites.

  • I appreciate that.. and the florals are becoming something I really enjoy doing more and more often.. and thanks

    Great colour and texture, Barb, the pastel can only compliment the watercolour.
    I know how watercolour dries flat and quite often needs a little lift.
