a very beautiful start in watercolours :thumbsup:
I like your bold colours and the strong darks against the lighter parts!

However, I wonder how you painted those yellow flowers ON the green -- must have been a very opaque yellow :D

thank you so much for sharing

A great use of watercolours. I presume you used yellow gouache.

As you can see it was the darks that really brought the painting to life.

I look forward to seeing more of your watercolours.

Wonderful watercolor. I find that greens are extremely difficult to get a variety that look well together. You've done an amazing job with this. Hope you stay with watercolor and post more to this forum.
