A rose

I discovered a hp site of a master of watercolors - Thierry de Marichalar.
A look at his magnificent paintings is a MUST! In his watercolors he creates amazing light effect and the colors literally glow.
I simply ADORE his work!!

There are many step by step techniques showed on his site, which he generously shares with others. Thank you very very much, Mr. Thierry.

I tried to follow one of his lessons making this little rose.

I just read your note on my blog and here is the url for the Lama li sketchbook at Dick Blicks
http://www.dickblick.com/zz101/55/ it has a lot of texture and I love it for ink and watercolor and textured subjects. I am on the way to filling up my second sketchbook.
