A Posy of Carnations

Today I'm sharing a fairly quick little watercolour I did some time ago now.  I plucked these two carnations from the vase and decided to paint them without any drawing and using only the brush shape to give me the form.
I have to say at the time I wasn't sure about the outcome but now I'm quite pleased with the result.  I know the top of the stems are a little too long but I think they're recognisable.
It's quite liberating not to draw or mark any shapes first and it's a method I want to try more often.
