This is my first watercolor painting. I painted from a photograph taken on vacation.

I liked your contrast, and think you can even go a little darker in the throat to make it look more 3d.

Thank you for your comments. I do a lot of
drawing and practiced each part of that picture before I painted it.

Mojo, This painting instantly took me back about 40 years into my Nanas'English flower garden. I can almost smell the fragrance. I think it's the color of the blossom that took me back. ....So Beautiful.... Looking at yor painting has been a very pleasant, soothing experience for me. Thanks for sharing it! Adelphia

MoJO....this is a wonderful painting. I can't wait to see your next one. If this is your first, you certainly will go far. Tell me what size your painting is.

FIRST!!! Incredible. You will definitely go far with your painting! Please post more when you get them finished. I do agree with the depth in the center of the flower...perhaps the photo didn't seem that dark in the center...I am truly envious!
