Demonstration Drawing

This is my daily creation for today!
This isn't a painting - at least not yet!  It is the drawing for a painting which I finally finished tonight.  This will be a large painting - it is drawn on a full sheet of watercolor paper 22" x 30".  I drew it using the grid method and have partially masked out the edges of the petals and the center of the bottom flower because I plan to pour the first layer of this painting with fluid acrylics, wet -in-wet and I want the edges to remain white.  I can paint some of them in color later on in the painting process.  This is for a demonstration for Lima Area Watercolor Society in March, and I am praying that the mask will not set up too much so it can be removed after the pouring process.

Yes - March 8th - to be precise! Sure hope it works out - it looks pretty involved for a demonstration - I'll be glad when it is over!
