Pink Crabapple Blossoms Watercolor Painting

This new watercolor painting of pink blossoms was just finished this evening. It is an 8 X 10" piece of artwork done on Arches 140 lb paper and is from a reference photo from Wet Canvas in their weekend drawing event.

In the painting process you sometimes come to a spot where you don't like what you're doing and there's a temptation to throw it all away, but I'm finding if I work past that point, it works out happily in the end. There's a lesson for us in there for a lot of things.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
...Calvin Coolidge
