Lovely delicate work Mia

That's beautiful Mia, very delicately painted 😃

Beautiful dainty roses and a graceful display Mia.

So delicate and beautifully done, Mia.

A beautiful delicacy to this Mia, love the way you have described the roses.

It's beautifully done Mia. Lovely and fresh and a sign of hope for Spring and better weather.

Just stunning. Love it.☺️

I was considering doing Ikebana at one point in my life too but didn't really have the time when it was on. You captured really well what it's about.. simplicity and elegance. A proper piece of art expressed with flowers.

Well it's lovely Mia. I agree with everyone about the delicacy - of the colours and the drawing.

How gorgeous this is Mia, a very beautiful, delicate painting.

Beautiful roses Mia. Really lovely work!

Thank you all so very much for your nice and positive comments, much appreciated :)

Beautiful. I love the way you make this your own, if you know what I mean.

Love it Mia

Gudrun and David: many thanks for your encouraging comments.

How beautifully painted Mia! Shows what can be done with a very simple reference.

Thank you very much for your lovely comment, Satu.

Hang on Studio Wall

Since my art-student years (long ago), I am interested in the Japanese art of flower-arrangements. This is a pen and wash (Inktense watercolour pencils), size A4. For the colours and shapes of the roses, I used my own photo, the rest is pure phantasie. All comments very, very welcome :)
