Spring Tree and flowers, sketchbook

This is the right hand section of a 24" accordion fold sketchbook panel.
It measures 5"x7".

The sunlight comes through the flowers, almost as if they are lit like candles. This type of back light in watercolor is best depicted by painting the negative space...the space around the flowers....and leaving the white paper to be tinted later.
