Magnolia - A commission in watercolor

I had gone to a Ted Head watercolor workshop recently and I learned quite a bit about handling some brand-new professional type watercolors. 

Up until now I have only been practicing, so I've been using the small pans --typically Koi or some Grumbacher pans. I finally went out and got some professional Winsor & Newton tubes, got a pallet, got a sheet of Arches...stretched it (my first time) and --wow what a difference. 

 I showed my first painting on Facebook and the response reminded me I needed to be doing more art! So I was asked to do a magnolia. I definitely will be doing more!
