Zinnias - Watercolor

Tonight I was in the mood to paint one of my favorite flowers but without trying to be so exact as I was with the tomatoes.  Instead I just wanted to capture the essence or general shape. 


We planted mixed zinnias this year but for some reason all colors other than yellow developed this rust like substance on the leaves which ended up causing them to die out.  So we have all yellow.  Why the yellow managed to escape this same fate is beyond me.

It's taking me some real effort to loosen up........lol. Thank you.....your comment lets me know I'm truly succeeding. I still have a ways to go for this to become more natural for me. I like the idea of becoming more versatile in my work. :-)

You did a great job of loosening up. I would love to learn how to do that.
