Love the purple and yellow together. I tried some flowers in this style of painting, but they were terrible...[note to self: must try harder!] You inspire me, thanks Jane.

Jane, these colours are perfect for each other. I love the softness and looseness of these.

Ciao Jane, sei riuscita a trasmettere la tenerezza dei fiori che si schiudono, la vita vegetale che nasce
e che crea gioia e stupore.
Ciao, Floriana

I try in english: you were been able to give us the tenderness of flowers
that are opening. the birth of green life and that give enjoy and surprise

Perfect demonstration of your previous post on complimentary colors. While the bottom two are lovely, the top three fully come to life with the contrasting background.

Beautifully done. I love watercolor for the very reason I like the way you paint. The clean fresh complimentary colors you used represent all that this medium has to offer.
Oh, and thanks for dropping by my blog. It is always a treat to share.
