Pale Pink Azalea Blossoms - watercolor

Pink Azalea Blossoms watercolor painting by Janet ZehThe sunlight makes patterns on the petals of these beautiful azalea blossoms. Such a gorgeous color, aren't they?

To create the effect of sunlight, one needs shadow. There is no light without dark when it comes to painting. Since this is a watercolor, the light areas are left as a pale wash of color, then the darker shades are painted over them.
