The flowers were dying, so I didn't make any copies of the line drawing. I just added some watercolor, which of course made the paper buckle a bit since it is in my sketchbook. But it was fun to capture the color. Next time I'll have to do a true watercolor on watercolor paper. I actually captured the color of the vase, but it is a hideous color and while it was still dry I blotted it up. Looks much better blotted.

It finally stopped raining and I had some time to draw this hydrant. I dragged a soccer chair over and sat in the street a little, but our street is pretty quiet and traffic was not a concern. Jack came out while I was drawing and said that neighbors a long time ago painted the hydrant some wild colors, but the city didn't like it and repainted it. This hydrant is a dull orange on top and yellow on the bottom. I should paint it.
