Did the floral on Monday, but couldn't upload - it is 7X10 done with colored pencil and took approx 3 hrs. Julia I did today and this took just about 3 hrs on 7X10 200 lb. rough Winsor & Newton.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/27-Feb-2013/174208-Shadows_On_The_Wall_7X10__3_hrs..jpg http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/27-Feb-2013/174208-Julia__7_X10_200_lb_RoughWinsor__Newton_3hra..jpg

The colored pencils are a good medium (in the right hands) for those flowers. Lovely colors and shapes. Love the shadow color! Miss Julia seems to be the star of this WDE, and with good reason. She looks great kate, esp. against your wash bg, which is fab on it's own. Nice light on the hair too. Two lovely works.

Both done with a nice light touch. The flowers are very appealing. You've captured their elegant shape and convincingly suggested their rich colour with economy of means.

Lovely work, I particularly like the center lisianthus flowers and how you've done them.

Nice job with both of these!

Excellent job with both paintings. Those flowers take time and effort and yours are wonderful. Julia's skin, hair and clothing are great. Lovely washes for the background.

i love the shadow colors on the floral. the light on the little girl is spectacular... not easy in watercolor.
