Bougainvillea Blossom

I'm an oil painter but my students are watercolorists. It's a wonderful adventure with them because I really think that I would let my love of watercolor take a backseat, if not for them.
This is a section of a bougainvillea study that I did out in my backyard. The glory of watercolor is the white paper, bouncing the light back to you through the vivid color laid on the page. I love it.
