Hi,Jane,
Wow... (in my feeling) very big work for wash only = not easy. I admire your sophisticated skills and enthusiasm for wash!!
Cheers, Sadami

Very nice. I like the feeling of mist. Quiet and soothing. I do like "Fragment of Venice" better though. I like seeing something through the mist--more promising, less empty, mysterious. Arouses curiosity.

I was going to say it reminded me of your, 'Venice' ... then I saw you'd already said it ;0). I wonder why this colour combination works so well? ...because it does

Interesting color combo. Quiet filled with wonder as is the venice painting. I also loved the recent flower posts.
