you did this work well and I feel this watercolor has a lot to give us back. The soft colors are very well balanced, yet the blue vase is very powerful and really adds warmth to the flowers. structurally its next to perfect and composition is great.

nice stuff,

bocote

I'm sorry guys!--- I should add the shape of the vase was copied! Not "fair" in critique not to mention that. I got scared halway through washes that I would never get the shape right. Just needed to make that clear:) Confidence is not "mine" yet.

Thanks for your responses Paintonbrush and Bocote.

Paintonbrush- do you recall the title of your post of this? I'd love to see it. "Peaceful"- wonderful:)

Bocote-" I feel this watercolor has a lot to give us back" - I'm working on that, thankyou. I do have to credit the lovely photo for the compostition, but glad I managed to hold on to it in the painting.
