  5. This is a gorgeous painting, Joan. I love that big white rose!

    I'm always amazed by watercolorists...how do you know what to leave white? With oils, you can put the highlights on top of colors.

  6. This is a lovely sketch Joan. I like that all the edges aren't totally finished because you painted exactly what needs to be there, anything more isn't necessary.

    Thank you for the kind comment on my blog too!

  10. Hi Virginia,

    Thank you for your visits and kind words. Yes, when painting florals in watercolor we have to use the white of the paper. I am still learning and I agree with you, oils the whites and highlights are painted using a mixture of white. It's such a long and wonderful journey learning and developing skills as an artist.

    All the best to you
    Joan

  11. Hi Kim,

    Thank you for the visit and noticing that I did leave some of the edges. Partly because of my inpatient nature and partly because watercolor is great for someone who likes to paint fast.

    All the best to you
    Joan
