Once that had dried, I decided to add some of those lines that appear on the agave leaves and miskited those in.  Then I added another layer of greens, slightly darker in some areas.

Since it would be a while before I got back to the painting, in order to keep the ink from drying out, I poured it into some small bottles with lids.

At this point in her painting, Barb began painting in watercolor.  However, I just couldn’t let that ink go to waste, so I painted a layer of ink at this point, using it just like I would watercolor.  When that layer dried I removed the miskit.

Deb - looks like Barb really inspired you. This is such a great painting with the vivid greens and also the white tips really show it off. Thank you for sharing. Hope you have a great week-end.

This is so my opinion you selected a perfect subject for this process. Your light is so nice in this, too.

Thanks Barb - I'm working on a peony also, hope to get it finished soon and post it. Could not seem to keep within the lines as you did, tho.
