La Vie en Rose 12" x 18" watercolor

Postby LorraineArsenault » Mon Sep 25, 2006 10:16 am

I did this painting in watercolor. I work from many photos that I took myself at the local botanical garden to create an original composition. I love to work in watercolor, I love the colors and the transparency but I didn't want to have the washy colors and deluted effect that some artists use with watercolors. I wanted my colors to be vi

I really appreciate the time you take to answer me and to give me your critiques on this work. It will be showed at an exhibit in October.

Thank you in advance!

Hello Lorraine,
I think you show great skill in your painting technique. The detail in the flower and leaves is wonderful anbd the colors are very lively. The only aspect of this painting that I do not love is the composition. I do not like the way that the rose on the top is cut off. It looks like the painting was cropped.

Other than that, it is wonderful.

best regards,

I'm not a huge fan of water colour but you've certainly done a great job of this.
great stuff!
