Sakura watercolor painting on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I painted this using an excellent, step-by-step watercolor painting tutorial from Ekaterina Smirnova.

My painting area, also known as my computer area/work desk every other day of the week.

And the finished painting, still mounted on the board. I am badly in need of some heavier-weight watercolor paper, but since the art store in town was recently taken over by the liquor store next door (the joys of living in a college town), I’m going to have to wait and order some online.
