"Rhodie in the Spotlight"

Here is another floral,  this one is done in Watercolor!  The flower was from my garden but I did change the values a bit to give it more depth in the shadows.  I wanted the flower with the light filtering through the petals to be the focal point!  Size on this one is
10" H x 14" wide.  As you can tell I really like to paint florals.  I was always told that you do your best work when you enjoy what you are painting!


  1. This is beautifully rendered and I love your colors.

  2. Thanks for checking this one out Nancy. Glad you like it!

  3. Beautiful artwork!
    I like florals too. I think you are right. You must paint what you like most. And I really like beautiful pink flowers.
    I like the dark background of your painting, it makes the flowers in the front glow.

  4. I love the vibrancy! I didn't know watercolors could be this intense!

  5. Thanks for checking this one out Jennifer & Dianna! I do like to paint florals in Watercolor. But I must admit I don't care for what I call Wishy-Washy Watercolors. I really like to have intesnse color as you can see in my paintings...
