Warm Transparent Watercolor Technique

Warm Transparent Watercolor Exercise
 This is an experimental exercise. I first drew circles and lines then I used only three colors, red, yellow, and blue transparent watercolor. Every time I came to a line I changed up the color or value...or at least I tried to! After I painted the underpainting I began defining the shape of the hibiscus. It is a fun little exercise and gives a totally different look to a traditional flower painting.

This is very spring-like, Leada, well done!
