drawing and watercoloring

These are two watercolors that I've done with my Fall group at my church. Something about being with these artists has challenged me to do things that I've never done before. The first design with the dove was designed on my computer from graphics that I had on some programs. I drew the circle with a circle that I had and freehand drew the dove. Then I had all kinds of fun putting the watercolors on.

The second one was done from a black and white drawing book of flowers that I have. I looked at the drawing of these lilies and drew it freehand. I call these ditch lilies because they grow wild in the ditches here where there was once an old home where someone originally planted the bulbs. They are actually day lilies.

I plan to add this verse to this drawing:

"Consider the lilies how they grow: They toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Soloman in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Luke 12:27
