Well..... not quite a Dion Dior, but a little more colorful then I'm used to....LOL....
I sketched this with my handy dandy 0.1 pigment pen...then I did a colour wash using my basic water colour palette.....(may I add that for the first time since I've started using watercolours have I actually used them as a wash.....LOL I watched a tutorial by a young woman Samantha Trattner, and I thought....ahhhhhhh thats how its done....silly me)....and then I went to bed, it was on its way up to midnight.

This morning arrived with more snow and the wind to go with it....but I digress...... I watched a tutorial by Dion Dior on Twinkling H20's.....I just love the glimmer....anyways, after watching it I remembered I had something similar to Twinklings....a watercolor palette of 10 Pearlescent and Metallic colours.....Soooooo....I applied the sparkling green to the leaves and to the pink and mauve of the flowers I added a sparkling's shimmering!

 Sorry it isn't showing white :0(

Well, you can't really see the shimmering, but it's there....I can see it....
I don't know how Dion gets her pictures to pick up the shimmering.....mystery.... lol

I'm not trying to change who I am, I will always love the soft pastels....they are just part of who I am.  But there is a part of me that really enjoys the vibrance (is that a word) of rich colours.
