Today's illustrations

I first drew this flower with pen and then went over it with watercolor. I think it worked out, though it is a bit crazy. I think the uncontrolled nature of it works in its favor, though. Also, I like the colors. I thought of Terry.

I painted this and then went over a little with pen. I again like the clouds, but the rest of it is rather iffy. I have not quite grasped when and how to use watercolor and then pen. I suppose if the picture had something dominant in the foreground, I could use the pen to put a lot of good detail in there, and use the pen sparingly in the middle and background.
