Flowers & Birds with Watercolor Live Brushes
in Adobe Fresco
The recent update in Adobe Fresco,  has made my addiction towards Watercolor Live Brushes very strong. And this is becoming an everyday affair by expressing my heartfelt strokes and deriving a slice of natural beauty around me.
But why watercolor painting in particular?
Watercolor is mobile on paper, making it the most active paint of all mediums. It's similar to any kind of performance art. It tests your patience, your discipline, and you can't make mistakes because you can't cover up the mark. All this quirk of the medium makes me challenge my efforts to control it. With Adobe Fresco 's live watercolor brushes, I found myself more connected to the traditional watercolor and dynamic nature of the brushes. Of course , the biggest advantage in digital would be the "Undo" & "Dry Layer" options to save time and correct your strokes. Watercolor is probably one of the most satisfying of all mediums for me. I'm just curious about the technicalities, and I'm still learning this beautiful medium.

Below are few paintings I have attempted using Adobe fresco in iPad and Apple Pencil.

Pink Plumeria or Firangipani or Champa Flower
Fun Fact: In Hawaii, when a plumeria flower is worn in the hair over the right ear, it means that she is single and looking; worn on the left side, she is taken.

Humming Bird
Fun Fact: Hummingbirds have no sense of smell. While they can’t sniff out feeders, they do have good color vision. A flock of hummingbirds can be referred to as a bouquet, a glittering, a hover, a shimmer, or a tune

Heliconia Rostrata - Heliconias are sometimes called "lobster claws" or "parrot flowers" because of their beak-like "bracts" which can be orange, purple, red, yellow, pink, green or a combination of these.
