One of my favorite garden flowers is the Zinnia. They are easy to grow and just full of bright, bold colors that attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard. So this new piece was just so much fun to create. I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about the name and I couldn't really come up with anything funny, punny or clever so I named it "Zinnia in the Bucket". It's rather obvious name but I find that it is better to keep the title simple than to be too elaborate or wordy if a "clever" title alludes me.
The medium I used here is Prismacolor pencils. I get asked often it the is watercolor and so I thought I would mention that I use odorless turpenoid with a brush to melt the wax and blend the layers of color pencil. This process gives it a painted look that I just love.
I decided I was going to also make the design into a coloring sheet and offer it on my website as a free download. I have a number of design there already and I just love the whole process of sharing my art with others. So feel free to hop on over to my website and print as many coloring sheets as you need. All I ask is that you don't try to sell them.
