Orange Squeeze

This weekend wasn't one of the relaxing ones I've had lately...working for office on a Saturday, which is usually my day off should have kept me miles away from any artwork. Instead, I managed to squeeze in some orange today.

These are initial pencil strokes

Now, the magic begins


 I love how water brings out the intense colour pigments

S, I love the watercolor painting. It looks so beautiful and reminds me of another watercolor painter we both admire and envy :)
