Have 2 of these one white and one purple of course my flowers are gone now but they are so beautiful and delicate so worked on this today just to keep painting. Painter pastel brush that I tweaked to get the effect I wanted. :wave:

I've never seen softer more beautiful pedals. The subtle nuances are what makes this painting a real winner. Beautiful.:)

Wonderful, Marge! It's not easy to portray those so delicate colorations. :clap:

Thank you Joel and Skinny these were fun to try since I didn't use white anywhere just different tones of grey. :wave:

Great flowers Marge, very delicate, I love the few touches of colour. Would it be even more effective if the background had less colour too?
