Purple Geraniums from Rebecca’s Garden


Beautifully vibrant!

Lovely use of lights and darks Carole! Very effective!

Lovely rich colours and a clever impression of the light coming up through the fragile petals.

Stands out - stunning colours

Beautiful colours Carole. Love the richness of the flowers.

A real eye-catcher, Carole. Love the rich colours against the bright background!

Really lovely colours and movement in this, Carole Peace and love, God bless, Andy x🙂x

A winner - colour and values just right.

Bright and so full of colour.

Love the colours and the focus light onto the flowers.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, which are always a source of inspiration Diane, Nandhini, Katy, Heather, Mia, Carolyn, Andrew, David, Stephen and Margaret. I have enjoyed all of your work, particularly lately, as the submissions appear to become increasingly challenging.

Beautiful purple and violet colours - my current favourite colour. Nice bold background green which do not interfere with the flowers.

Wow, love that neon green Carole it sets of the purple geraniums so well!

Thank you Ceri for your lovely comments. The flowers were lighter than these but I also love deep purples so couldn’t resist. Thank you Carole for your encouragement. I managed to mix that green to a neon, through trial and error but I found a very garish green watercolour pencil, which did the trick when mixed with lemon yellow.

Gorgeous depth of colour Carole. Love it!

Vibrant indeed and beautiful colouring Carole.

Beautiful colours again Carole. Gill

A real eye popper with great composition and play of light.

Very poetic work and beautiful colors !

A real eye catcher with that strong chroma.

Thank you so much for looking and your lovely words Linda, Susan, John, Gillian, Anna and Stephen.

Very nice contrast, and rich colours.

Your work just gets better and better- I am stopping paint flowers Carole 😂

Many thanks for your lovely comments John and Shaun. Don’t give up painting flowers Shaun. ‘The last Rose of Summer’ you painted was so sumptuous and beautiful.

Love the glowing greens against the purples, which gives the piece a very ephemeral feel.

Lovely bright vibrant colours.

14 “x 16” watercolour with white acrylic spattering. Further inspiration from my friend’s garden. Loved the rich purples and tried to capture this but the flowers are a bit on the dark side.
