Hydrangeas in a vase

For the last couple of months I've been working towards just using my watercolor brush to draw and paint, instead of sketching first with a pencil and then applying paint.  I am enjoying this process of painting because it requires me to paint spontaneously, just as I paint in Chinese Brush.  It's taken me years to get to this point of being OK in not putting every detail in my paintings. I also realized that I needed the foundation of first  painting every detail to bring me to this point where I am today ... creating an impression of what I see.
