Gajra - Water Colour Sketch on hand made paper

This is a quick water colour sketch of a Jasmine Gajra ( Indian word for bunch of flowers worn in hair). I got them last evening and wanted to paint them . Wish I could do an oil but I do not have the time as the flowers would wither away and decided to do a quick morning sketch. As I painted this, the sweet smell of the flowers added to the beauty of the moment. I never thought about it before but Gajras can really make very interesting still life subjects!
