Redone; Orange/Blue

Didn't like the flowers and the background when I saw it posted, so back to the drawing board!
I've added Holbein's Opera to my palette; it's a super bright color that when used sparingly can liven up some duller color. Mixed it with Translucent Orange and also applied a wash for the background.

Orange/Blue Watercolor

My favorite part is the subtle purplish color in the foreground. I think I may fix the vase to make it more symmetrical.

Old Favorite

Sometimes I go back and do the same set-up to see how I'm doing; what I've learned. It's an interesting practice!

6x6 inches!

I worked outside of my comfort zone in both size and substrate, This is linen canvas. It's ok, Still prefer smooth boards. They seem to let the paint sit on the surface. You can then you can work the paint easier!
