Thanks, Natalie.  I love stippling.  Worked really well here, especially for the cherry blossoms.

Wonderful effect Mea.  O0 I've found stippling makes great sand/stones for beaches/roads etc.   I'll be using the technique a lot more in future works. Great colourings in your flowers.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I just got a new batch of hemp paper as the Green Fields Paper Company had a 25% off sale last month.

I am still experimenting with it and love it for watercolor.

I just used some small pieces from their paper sample book for this hemp leaf and lavender spike.


I only had limited supplies of brushes and paint with me today because I was mother-sitting for a friend.  Could have done   a better job on the hemp leaf, but I was happy with the way the lavendar flowers came out (although the leaves look a bit sickly.

I love your hemp leaf just the wayit is,  nice other flowers .    The hemp papermust absorb a lot of water.
