Gorgeous! Makes me yearn for summer to start (it's still cold here)!
I love this! It looks like it was quickly done, and yet it captures the shape of the blossom so perfectly! I'm jealous: I've been laboriously rendering a lace-cap hydrangea blossom and it doesn't have the vitality that this does. You've inspired me try a quick sketch instead!
I agree with Sarah--you captured this with nothing but shapes and shadows, and it screams geranium with very little specific detail. One of the wonders of watercolor, when you can master it, and you certainly have here. (Love the shadows in a hurry below as well!)
This is lovely. I love your fresh loose style.
My mom grew these flowers. You captured them so simply. They have breath and life.
Thank you for the lovely comments...yes a quick sketch and I was looking more at the colour than details!
Captured it so well Cathy.
Gorgeous! Just what watercolor should be, bright and spontaneous. I love this kind of painting!
I love the "splashiness" of this!!
The colour is so vibrant - I love it.Looks like I have missed loads being away for such a short time.I hope your knee and camera are both better now Cathy.Stew.stewcrowther.wordpress.com_________________________
I love geraniums and you did a stellar job with this one! nancy
You do beautiful work - i love how you have those small red dots outside the flower!
