Rhubarb Leaf and Other Watercolors

I posted two charcoal drawings I made on a plant painting/drawing course earlier. I also made watercolor works during that course. The first one, a rhubarb leaf, was a quick painting. The assignment was to make the sketch with a brush instead of a pencil. I usually sketch all my paintings in pencil first so that was new for me. I've gathered all art supplies and other tools I use to make my watercolor paintings in a 3-page guide you can download for free

The other paintings are close-ups of leaves and a flower. The assignment was to go very near the subject and magnify it and pay attention to colors, shapes and patterns. I had applied a blue wash on the paper before painting the dried lupine leaves and that turned out to be a bit tricky but it did set a different mood for the painting.
