Ron's Flower


 This is my latest watercolor done for our Painting Friends 2 hour challenge.  The lovely photo was provided by Ron for this December challenge.  It is small only 5 1/2 "by 8 on Arches 140 rough.  I really like the way I have kept the white paper on the petals as I added all the shadows.   Please enjoy and leave your comments as I do like to read them. 


  1. Nora. congratulations~ you did a marvelous job on this flower! It is beautifully painted. It is always so difficult to keep some of the white on a white flower as soon as you start adding shadows:-)

  2. Nora, I do like this painting. I especially like the soft edges of the petal as it goes toward the white. Lovely

  3. Thankyou Christiane yes keeping the white paper is hard but I managed better with this one.

    Thankyou also Ann

  4. Its a stunning flower, Nora. The feeling of light is simply amazing! xx
