Birthday Callas

I sent M these calla lilies for her birthday last week. I thought I'd sketch them to remember both her birthday and my visit.

Beautiful bright callas. Wonderful gift to your friend and to us.

Good job on the flowers... Just a suggestion for next time...

You might want to try leaving a bit more or the white to designate the light hitting the high spots. This would imrpove your painting 100 % I hope you don't mind my commnets, I wish I had more help when I was just learning to paint. When you leave the white soften the edges between the color area and the white area so it fades in.

Beautiful, Lin. I really love the colors. And Shant's suggestion is good too, I'm going to keep it in mind for my next watercolor ( I always over-paint).

Purple callas? How exotic and lovely!

I love purple and green together. Truly one of my favourite colour combinations. This is lovely Lin. You are such a good friend.
