Flowers and French Curves

I thought I'd share a recent painting...   Simple flowers with stencil drawing behind them. I love using the French Curve stencil, it's so fluid and graceful.  At the same time, I love the rigidity and limitation of using only the edges of the stencil to create the shapes. The flowers are watercolor with metallic ink centers; the stencil forms are Prismacolor, and the "grid" in the back is black ink pen. I found some India Ink pens that I LOVE.  Enjoy!!
