An Experimental weekend

flower study watercolorThis weekend happened to be very experimental in nature. I hardly do flowers (have done it only once before). The complexity of form and colors of flowers scare me. And on Saturday for a change I did some flowers from a live setup with PC. Idea was that of PC. I was not able to simplify what I was seeing and was getting caught up in the details. It took about 3 hours to complete it (with a break of about an hour in between because of power failure) and had a lot to learn from the experience.

ripples watercolorIn the second painting which was done on Friday I wanted to capture the ripples in the pond. After looking at some photographs I kind of got an idea about the characteristics, but could not translate it on to the paper. I think I'll give it a fresh try after some days.

@flower
The background is creating good emphasis on the flowers. Good that you changed it at the end.

@refections
This has come out well..
But, I see that the ripples have less randomness (entire water has almost same pattern). Also, there is a usage of light green in the water (left) and its counterpart is missing in the trees..

PC,

I did not like the second painting for the same reasons you mentioned.
