White flowers can be a challenge in watercolour.
They need some shading to them to give them shape and form.
But if we shade them TOO much, we won’t be able to lighten them again and they’ll appear grey.
Not what we want!

And snowdrops are a symbol of hope that reminds us that spring won’t be too far off.
Let me know if you’ve spotted any yet, and whether white flowers are something you’ve struggled with before in the comments.
