30 x 30, day 2

Today I tried a watercolor sketch of some red lilies that bloomed against our log cabin a few weeks ago. We took down the small fenced yard recently, no longer owning a dog, but I didn’t want to get rid of this gate Bill had built — so I leaned it against the cabin to let roses climb on it. Roses that may or may not have made it through the colder-than-usual winter.

I can see right off that I need to be more careful with tonal values. The leaves had a yellow-green for highlights but the deeper green bled into the lighter, overwhelming it.
