Watercolor Pencil Lilies

This is my first try at painting with watercolor pencils. I did this rendering of one of our pink Lilies that I photographed this Summer. I liked the control of using a pencil, but could brush over it with water to get the painterly effect. The next subject I'm going to try is from a photo I took of a Semipalmated Sandpiper at the wildlife refuge.

Young Cardinals are visiting the feeder now. We still have Chickadees, House Sparrows, and the Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds.
