Watercolor Wednesday - Hollyhocks

Hello!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Watercolor Wednesday Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  This week we are painting hollyhocks.  I decided to go with a single stalk of hollyhocks instead of the cluster painted in this week's tutorial. I also kept my background plain instead of the beautiful leaves that are shown in this week's tutorial.  Fear got to me!  Even though my hollyhocks are not perfection, I was happy with this attempt and afraid I would mess it up with greenery.  
I framed my painting with the Rectangle 6 in 1 Frames and added a New Day sentiment.  I would never have added the sentiment without my MISTI.

Notes: I followed a youtube tutorial by Emma Jane Lefebvre. 



  1. Oh my! This is stunning, amazing hollyhocks! And I so love the grey on grey layering!

  2. So pretty. Holly hocks are so stately. You did great

  3. Beautiful painting Angie, and I love that sentiment - the fonts are a beautiful accent to the hollyhocks
    Stay safe

  4. Angie, this is breathtakingly gorgeous. Every last element (very much including the use of two layers of serene grey cardstock) is spot on, inspiring, and as pretty as springtime itself.
