Dr. Ph. Martin Hydrus Watercolors & Candied Trees

I finally succumbed to a cold last week (thanks goodness it wasn’t the flu!) and have been out of action for awhile… but, I’m getting better and will get back to painting today!

I’ve recently been experimenting with Hydrus watercolor paints (made by Dr. Ph. Martin) – they behave a bit differently than my favorite Daniel Smith paints, but their saturated, vivid colors are wonderful to create with.  I’ve been wanting to start a new series of fantastical trees – what do you think?

    Great piece. I am loving those deep, saturated colors. They contrast so well with the background.

    I’d like a bit of a byte of those candied trees.
