...a couple of watercolour  still life studies painted  from life  ...should have reserved more of the whites in the garlic head "garlic i"  .... might add some white ...some garlic heads are  quite brown ... broke the garlic head and made a quick and simple wash  "garlic ii" using the same palette and working on a much smoother paper .

Wow, Jane! They are both so beautiful soft painted. You should frame them together. Those colors are so nice!

Jane, You are the master of subtleness. I like both of these, the color palette is just right.

All these colors on these heads of garlic, very nice.

Very, very nice. I see what you mean about reserving more white but I don't think it detracts from the end result.

Wonderful studies, soft, fine, it is like a poetry to the garlic.
