Roses and Callas
12x9 watercolor on Yupo paper
It was good to read all the positive
comments on my last post
and I thank you for them.
I agree and do believe that there

Culprits... the two
facing callas, left and right,
I thought of "horns" when I finally "saw" them
To make the change I became cautious.
I painted some paper I matched with
the general background

to decide which one I would change.

Hats off to clever Sea Dean who
spotted my problem with the first

but sometimes these aberrations are what gives
the painting it's quirkiness and prevent the
chocolate box effect.
That's where artistic license comes in.
Excellent - Now I have to figure out
if they are too chocolate boxy
Any thoughts anyone?
