COOL WASH

This was posted yesterday, but since then, a pale blue wash of Cobalt Blue has been added to the background as well as to some of the petals of the flowers. Stronger darks were also added, as per Rhonda's good suggestion on the last post. Maybe better?

Yesterday's post was a little too pale compared to the real painting. This one's more accurate, I think.

The last couple of days have been spent blowing bubbles - paint bubbles! More to come soon on this:-D

I like em both, the bottom one is brighter, maybe the photo?
I love this technique, when I did this I kept the background and never went any farther it is so pretty:)

Very nice! I like more darks - it looks more complete and more planned now than it did before.
Bubbles? Hmmmm....

I love the more muted look of this one! It's beautiful!
