This is the finished watercolor from the workshop I taught a couple of weeks ago.  It was a wonderful group of artists coming in from across the country.  They learned so many techniques to accomplish this still life.  Plus, we had so much fun and laughed a lot!!  A big thank you to the Fernwood Botanical Gardens for hosting us.  The gardens were beautiful and the food was delicious!
