  1. Love the demo June! Your painting is so lovely! It was alcohol you splattered, right? Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

  2. Hi Sheila,

    Thanks for commenting. I only used water with this watercolor. When the paper is saturated and has just lost its shine, it’s very responsive to water misting or splatter. That’s what creates the “blooms.”

    Fun 🙂

  3. WOW! Thanks so much for that June. I have never tried this before, and I am excited to after seeing your demo. I really have not done much with lifting either, it is so beautiful in this piece! I can tell you had fun… there is “Happy” all over your work!
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise!
    God Bless!

  4. Hi June, I loved this demo. The daylily is so pretty. I liked the loose way you approached it. I was waiting for this beautiful daylily to open so I could take photos of it and then get out the watercolors. Alas, deer ate it down to a nub…every single bud on it. I hope it will come back, but doubt it will flower again this year. So, I have your painting to drool over. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  5. Hi Diana, sounds like deer love day lilies too. I rescued a few from the rainstorm we just had….they are looking relieved on the breakfast table 🙂

  6. Wet into Wet and lifting—-Wow I needed that! Now I have the courage to paint the Day Lilly for my daughter-in-law, yeah!
