Thanks mom for the new set of watercolors!! I couldn't wait to open up my new set of Sennelier transparent watercolors and take them for a "test spin". I was very pleased with their transparency and vibrant color! This is the "spring section" of my living room playing their concerto in the beautiful sunshine yesterday afternoon. Just like everywhere - money is tight here in our household right now but I couldn't resist the luxury of a bouquet of our wonderful Skagit Valley spring tulips. I took many reference photos in the hope of preserving their beauty even after they're gone by doing some paintings.
