A digitally painted watercolour from scratch using Corel Painter 12.1 and many custom floral brushes that I am developing for a course in painting florals.
Meant to go with Spring Essence Version Two as a pair, but I like the looseness and the freshness of this one more, so I will have to repaint Spring Essence ’s background again.

I am a Digital Watercolourist living in Toronto, Ontario. I paint watercolours of landscape, floral and still life subjects using Corel Painter 12. I have been painting for about ten years and writing about it for eight. I also print and sell my work online and privately.
