Janet's Garden

Thought I try a fun painting of my friend Janet's garden. I painted it on Canson rough paper, 15 x 20. I used mostly watercolor, but started with some green gouache.

For those who do not know what gouache is, it's an opaque watercolor. Regular watercolor is transparent and you sometimes loose the colors as they dry into the paper. With the opaque, you can lay on the color and it dries pretty much like what you put on. So for this one, it helped with all the foliage.
