Golden Rod is the name of the dried flower. Here in Ontario, Canada it is somewhat of a weed but beautiful nevertheless. Wonderful video – planning to paint along tomorrow! Thank you for the inspiration.

Sally Reffert says:

Love your work Kris! Please tell me the name of the orange brush pen you used. I couldn't find it listed in the comments.

Angie Wright-Artist says:

I love your loose floral work Kris, truly beautiful and you have a very unique painting style that I really enjoy. I'm going to try some of your techniques with acrylic inks and see how they turn out. I've been trying different loose styles lately and I really enjoy yours. So happy you make these videos. I'll tag you if any of them turn out and I share. Thank you Angie

Ps. I do sell my works and don't always scan so I have to make sure all my materials are lightfastness. I am interested in learning more about turning watercolors into textiles and seeing how you mount and display them
