Dear Jane, your blue with purple is really superb. These washes suggest to me extraordinary flowers!

Very pretty. The blue is a gorgeous shade. Really like how you have got each flower to spread but hasn't lost its shape.

Beautiful wash with such a lovely texture and nice value range! It looks like a blue hydrangea flower.

I just stand back and admire. Luckily I'm a simple soul who believes in magic ... otherwise I would puzzle at how you make such fantastic images!

Hope you liked Cologne - we loved living there.
