Watercolor flowers by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, part two

These are botanical studies from Mackintosh's sketchbook. They are airy and lightly finished, somewhat stylized. I love the spare pencil lines and how leaves and blossoms overlap without obscuring each other.

  1. Lovely. I like the half finished aspect of these. Really love your last post too!

  2. Thank you. I used to check "how to paint watercolor" books out of the library, and I always liked how the projects looked one or two steps away from when the author said they were complete.
