Not getting out much these days, so...I'm going to work from some of the reference material I've taken over the last few years.

I'm just getting back into watercolors, here are a bunch of quick thumbnails:

I'm going to try to do tons of these. I figure eventually the fluidity will return and I'll do something good. In the mean time I'll have fun playing. I'd almost forgotten how much I love using a real brush...and I love the way the textures magically appear on the rough watercolor paper.

I think my favorite one of these may be the purple monochrome.
