White Almond Flower

I recently completed this floral watercolor...it is from a photo provided by the online group I am a member of - the Watercolor Workshop, and is their "all paint from one photo" painting "white" project for December. The photo was taken by Roger Brown and was posted on PMP web site. The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I tried to reach a balance between "tight" and "loose" in this and am happy with the results.

Barb, this is more realistic than the photo! The sense of light and the delicate shadows of the flowers are just masterful in this. Love it!

Art friends...Thank you, thank you, thank you for the generous comments! They are so appreciated - you are all artists so you know how much positive input means. I was happy with this painting and your comments reinforce those feelings.
Happy New Year to you all.
