The Evolution of Mary Jo's Bouquet

I had some extra Kay time this afternoon and began the process for painting Mary Jo's bouquet. This will be a watercolor on stretched canvas. The first step is to prime the canvas with rubbing alcohol to remove all fingerprints. Then I added lots and lots of magenta, yellow orange, blue, teal, purple in a random pattern. Now, it has to dry before I begin carving out the flowers, using a stiff lifting brush. More to follow.
