Re: February Plant Parade

Got lost a little in this one. Watercolour on 9X12" Fluid cold press paper. I'm disappointed with this new paper and found the watercolour didn't blend or lift well. Oh well, it is what it is

Re: February Plant Parade

Finally got back to comment, wonderful paintings here for the "White" Challenge....may not get my entry completed this month with all I've got on.

Christel - Both are great, thank you for doing two paintings! Beautiful flowers I like the way you've rendered the foliage too.

Joy - Great job on the negative painting Lily. I find negative painting difficult but you've handled it with ease!

Lil - Both beautiful paintings and thanks for doing two!

Kay - Beautiful Peony and lovely work on background too - those colors are gorgeous!

Zelda - Super Lily beautifully rendered!

Lady Sue - Good to see you back again with us - beautifully rendered white flower!

Imelda - Gorgeous Lily!

Bonnie - Beautiful Orchid!

Sanlynn - Beautifully rendered and I love those pale lavender shadows.

Thank you so much everyone for all your wonderful "White" entries. Such a variety of different styles and colors in the shadows -a real pleasure to view them all!

Re: February Plant Parade

Lil - Both are very nice.

Kay - Red was a very clever idea.

Zelda - That is award winning! The COI is perfect.

Ladysue - Nice and fresh.

Imelda - Also fresh and spontaneous.

Bonnie - Very bold color choices.

Sanlynn - I can think of no improvement to make to this. Shadows and petals look so natural.

Re: February Plant Parade

Bonnie, THe vibrant colors give a contemporary twist. Well done
Sanlynn great light and shape. The black background give it a portrait feel almost. Hoe did you get the black so deep? Good work.

I used two layers of black gouache. First time trying this method. Normally I wouldn't use black but I wanted to try it after seeing it in another painting. It certainly was easier and quicker than layering many different colours to get the effect.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone

Re: February Plant Parade

Here's mine at last! I'm sorry I'm so late finishing mine - lots of problems with the watercolor drying fast in hot temperatures but at least I finished it at and got it posted.

20cm x 30cm - watercolor on watercolor paper



I'll try and get time to make the Gallery tomorrow. Thanks everyone for entering your beautiful white flower paintings!
