I think the colours are fascinating...again one of my Water Colour challenges. The reference photograph is from one of the hosts from Canada, who possibly have these growing in her garden! I think the painting has come out well...I love the greens and orangy reds and the glow in the picture. Still not quite what I want to achieve...which is more fluidity in the mixing of the colours and a looser style of painting. I have to learn to get the edges less rigid! The paper needs to be of better quality too. What I am using now doesn't really allow the paint to stay before you can put in the next wash and that is possibly be one of the reasons why my edges are so hard!
