hi there marina ! ..already thinking about carrying on the washes 100+ ! :D...didn't retain enough white on the rose but managed to sketch the last of the roses... the greyish bluish green of the eucaplytus is beautiful...are you in france or the netherlands at the moment ?

Floriana Quaini ha detto...

ciao Jane, ti avevo già scritto il commento, ma devo aver sbagliato qualcosa, non sono ancora molto esperta. Era: la tua rosa è molto poetica. Credo che i fiori dipinti
debbano parlare e i tuoi parlano. ciao, floriana

jane minter ha detto...
