#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 2: Flowers

Hi! I'm playing along with the 31-day Watercolor challenge on Charlie O'Shield's (Doodlewash) blog called #WorldWatercolorMonth. Charlie started this to inspire people to paint but also to raise awareness for children in need of art supplies and art education around the globe!.

These are orchids I photographed when I visited the orchid garden in the Botanical Garden in Rio de Janeiro. Such an amazing place!

I'm using Charie's prompts page where he has suggested a subject for each day and today's theme was: Flowers.

I'm also entering this for the wonderful 30-day coloring challenge that super talented Kathy Racoosing is hosting again this year - and do I agree with her when she says that coloring, if only for a few minutes a day makes you so much happier. When I paint or color I forget everything round me and totally relax. What if I could finish off my workday by coloring for 15 minutes - I'd come home a much better person. (-: 



If you want to view more of my watercolors I've collected some on my Watercolors page HERE
or you can follow me on instagram

Happy Painting, hugs, Karin

Need inspiration/photos to use as I've created a page HERE with pictures of subjects I've painted in case you'd like to use them for reference. You are more than welcome to use them for your creative projects as long as you let me know and link back to my blog.
