Daffodil in Dry Brush

This is a botanical illustration in watercolor. I recently completed a weeklong workshop given by Lizzie Saunders on dry brush technique. This daffodil is an example of the method. There is no water placed on the paper, no washes, no wetting at all. The entire image is created with overlapping small brushstrokes, with very minimal water to dilute the pigment.
