Watercolor and Pan Pastels

Okay first off,  I am NOT a watercolorist, have only tried it a few times.  So I decided to draw a few flowers and use my watercolor pencils (which I rarely use) to color in the drawing.  I decided to use my pan pastels (rarely use) for the background.  So in the end, although my drawing is very childish, I at least used some of my art supplies that are gathering dust, and had fun to boot!  Oh, and the butterfly is my new Martha Stewart punch.  All in all it was a good day. 8-)
Would love to take a water color class online.  Think next time I will eliminate the drawing and go straight to the watercolor pencils or pans and see how that works out.

Hi Pat,
Yes-it's very fresh! I've been wanting to try the pan pastels, too. Thanks for 'following' my blog!
