Very beautiful, Jane, it is a kind of emotional painting to me, I don't know why. Maybe the combination of the hard lines of the building and the soft washes of the leaves.

Hi, Jane, go for it! Me, too, explore washes and try to create images from memories (that's what my mentor has suggested). Enjoy watercolour!
Best wishes, Sadami

So beautiful! I didn't need to hear an explanation - I saw walls and those lovely blooms falling over the tops.

The hard line and soft flowers combined makes it very interresting Jane.

This is gorgeous...more than just a study in my eyes. I love how the minute detail intertwines with the softness.
