Watercolor Flower Painting - Not Quite White

OK, I did a few minor tweaks and after staring at this for sometime have decided it is complete and named it Not Quite White :)

There was a brief moment of sunshine so I took the painting outside to photograph so I think these colors are truer than the previous posts. The more I look at it the happier I am with the background, it has a nice velvety texture which I never quite seemed to achieve in the past so I must be learning something!

Tracey - thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment! Of course, then I had to come here to check you out - and I'm impressed with your work. Good luck on your upcoming art walk.

Tracey, your iris is exquisite! I'd have gotten lost in all the twists and turns and probably given up. I checked out the FB link you posted. I like your painting the best by far.:)

Costescu said...

lol thanks Billie for both the iris & FB comment! Yup I got lost many times :) It was such a nice break from fighting with my old acrylics though I didn't mind getting lost here & there ;)

Hi Tracey! Your iris finished beautifully with that soft, velvety blue... Whites are a lot of fun to paint, and it's certainly evident that you enjoyed this process!

Costescu said...

Thanks so much for stopping by Char :) Yes, why did I fight it for so long, apparently I am very stubborn :)
