Love this one. What a particularly like is the way you have not over defined each flower and let it be more about merging colours. Did you use oil pastels? Very happy painting.

What a beauty this is. absolutely great, fresh and lively.

I used soft pastel Thea. You have hit the nail on the head regarding the colours. That is what fascinated me about the arrangement the colours. the flowers were picked from her garden and she definitely had an artistic eye.

You Mum was right Jeannette, I recognised your style immediately. Lovely painting and great colours.

And Bless your mum, I bet she loves it! It's fresh and unlaboured, with that feel that cottage garden flowers have...they are so lovely they don't need any gilding. Your style is lovely and I like the zing which the pastel gives on the watercolour. I like too the way you have placed it, with the right hand side receding into a clear wash.

Lovely painting Jeannette, I like the pastel strokes on the table top and the reflection too.

Hi Jeanette, I like the daisy flowers very much. The colours are perfect as already been said. Those purples and blues are great and of course your use of pastel with watercolour I always admire~~~~Carole.

I agree with all of the above, such a vibrant colourful painting, very cheery :), thanks for comment on summer spell, kind regards Karleen.

Beautiful flowers! Love the glass vase too.

Jeannette I love this and the story that goes with it. Beautiful painting. Well done.

Please accept my apologies I also meant to thank you for your comments on my cala lilly lll painting, so thank you very much I'm glad you like them.

Very well painted Jeannette, your mum obviously has an artists eye! and very good taste. Many thanks for your kind comments on my painting. Best wishes, Bill

A rainbow bouquet tenderly embraced by summer light. Gorgeous ;-D

This was painted in situ on holiday. The vase of flowers was left by the owner for our arrival in the property we rented. I admired them for a couple of days and decided I wanted to paint them. It has been mounted and framed. (getting ready for a forthcoming exhibition). We collected mum for the weekend she lives in London. She took one look at the painting and said; those are the flowers you painted, I'll by that! Mum is eighty seven bless her. I gave it to her of course. drawn with masking fluid, watercolour wash and pastel 12 x 16"
