Spring blooms for the first day of Spring!

I thought I'd attach some colourful floral illustrations to celebrate the first day of spring!
These are all watercolour interpretations. Here I have worked by building up very soft layers of paint allowing the colours to bleed together and then dropping the detail over the top once the paint has dried.

Carnations and Anemones (top) and detail (below)
Watercolours help to give the flowers a great translucency with papery thin petals - but also a great depth of colour without appearing too heavy.
Lilies and Crocus
