Crocus Watercolor Painting
In my opinion the first sign of spring is seeing the crocus pop up from the barren earth. This spring I was excited to see this lovely patch of crocus which my neighbor planted a second time after my dog dug them up. I was amazed they grew considering they were chewed on by my dog, and their beauty was exquisite! I took several photographs and found the shapes and stripes compelling to paint. I finally sat down to put this feeling into a watercolor painting.
