Floral



The two bunches of flowers I purchased recently filled two spreads in my journal last week. The tulips were a gift so I sketched them first, the beautiful cream and purple mix were a treat to myself and look so pretty in my favourite little duck egg blue jug.

How nice to treat yourself! I really like the way you did the first one - very effective - would make an interesting print! Very pretty colours in the second one.

Stunning. I particularly love your compositional style and the way you've used the watercolours in the 'negative'. It's a great effect.

See, we all ought to know if we are patient things will right themselves - but do we ever!!!! Same goes for me yesterday, the girls were on the computer and the mouse stopped moving. Checked the wireless receiver - no problem and its only today I changed the batteries (Jim's advice) and voila I'm up and running again.
Love both sketches and adore the negative colouring for the first tulips. The girls brought me tulips, chocs and cake yesterday, so I might take a leaf out of your book and paint them tomorrow when they go home. They are soft pink.
