Thank you, Maureen, for hosting and for the lovely images. I have done two but that orchid is calling to me..... :lol:

I have some white clematis that should be blooming soon - but this flower really has loads of petals --looks different from mine. Anyway, took me about 1 1/2 hours watercolor. (7.75 x 7.75 - Sennelier paper) I started with the flower first hoping I would go lighter with the b/g but it didn't work....

This 9 x 12 (watercolor also) and took me a bit longer layering on the lily pads and water colors. (2 1/2 hours I think)

These are gorgeous. I love all the color in the first one especially.

Beautiful, Bunny - just love the colors used in the white clematis and love the shadows on the lily pads created by the lotus blossoms which are beautifully painted

These are both gorgeous but my fav is the second. I like the framing you chose and the light/dark contrast.

Very pretty colours in the clem. Bunny - it's gorgeous ........... (it was supposed to be single petals but when it grew, the flowers formed like cartwheels and opened to be macro-petalled!)
The water lilies are beauties too - can't choose a favourite but do hope you can manage time for the orchid!:D

Thank you for these lovelies.

Georgia O'keefe would be envious. Lovely crop and endearing interpretation.

Love the colors used in the lilies, background, leaves and flowers. Your rich whites are excellent in the large flower and the subtle greens in the background are perfect.
