Bird of Paradise....

One of the subjects I used for my watercolor classes this last series was the Bird of Paradise. I wanted to teach how to mix color on the paper as well as on the palette. This is always fun because of the surprises that happen with watercolor.

This is a demo I worked on in class to teach this idea.

Since I love painting this way, I went home and did a large painting with Stargazer Lilies. I love mixing colors right on the paper and letting the paint, water and paper do all the work for me.

I think those are birds of paradise? Unless stargazer lily is another term for them? I love the paintings though!
You are so right. I was put up Stargazer Lilies on Society6 at the same time, and had a senior moment.
