Flower Designs - By Mary Maki Rae 2019(c)
************************************
During these Dark and Windy Days of January - I've been working off and on in my small study room - on some New Flower Designs using Gouache paints.
I enjoy how this paint dries flat and  layers so well over each color.
Back to the easel soon when the Sun is shining -!
