Painting a Garden Splendor Watercolor

Today I am sharing with you the steps I take as I am painting a garden splendor in watercolor paint. The inspiration for this flower garden splendor with an ocean view is from Branford, Connecticut. The garden was full of colorful blooms and the ocean backdrop was a pretty blue color. Not to mention the cute bird house. Sketch for my next painting.
