Floral Pattern with Watercolor

Diwali Sand Art or the colors of Mexican Talavera? Both. This pattern would be amazing on a rectangle platter. I sketched out this design. Tried coloring with soft pastels. What a mess. These colors turned out amazing. I painted another vase and my shadow/

I enjoy free style painting never really knowing what will happen. Watercolor surprises me every time. You have to be patient You can’t control the water clouds or the little textures. I do need to fix a few areas but that’s what the eraser tool it for. Thank goodness. Looks good! Can’t wait to add this pattern to the shop.

I’ve eyed an Egytian pattern and color palette. Lanterns for the Moonlight festival? I can picture them now.
