Re: February Plant Parade Challenge

Viv and Jean, thank you!! It was exciting to say the least!! The flower was easy and so were the leaves, but that bg was a mess for a while! I will be proud to show it at the Art Show next November and I thought I had ruined it! Watercolor always let you know that IT is charge!!

Okay, off to see March, Jean!!

Katherine

Re: February Plant Parade Challenge

Maureen, I understand completely about not having the time...this is the first month in several that I've scraped out the time--kinda had to, as I was hosting! LoL

Katherine, what a lovely, bright rendition of that flower. I'm glad you chose that one!

I'll be putting the gallery together today. Should have it posted in a few hours.

Re: February Plant Parade Challenge

TaDa!!! Here's the gallery! What a beautiful garden of tropical flowers!



Oops. I made it too long, and it was automatically resized...hope it's not too small! I also hope I didn't forget anyone!!!

Cheers to all you happy garden painters!

Re: February Plant Parade Challenge

Lea, the Gallery is just beautiful, thank you!! Also, thanks for the nice comments about my flower that just got there at the last minute!

Maureen, thank you. No, no Opera pink, but Quin Red. It really is not that blended together looking either, but bad lighting and reds don't mix!! It needs to be taken out in the sunshine and retaken, but we haven't seen the sun in ages, so will have to wait. Would love to see one IRL, though.

Off to think about Magnolias now!

Katherine
