White Rhododrendron

So beautiful Val, you have made the white flowers glow out of the dark background. The negative painting is well done also the shadows on the leaves. Really like this painting.

Beautiful control of the medium Val - superb result

This is really lovely Val, I love rhododendrons and this unusual white variety makes a stunning painting.

Super watercolour Val,that tiny touch of pink makes the whole painting sing!

I don't think you need the practice Val....this is a beautiful example of negative painting.....gorgeous!

Very striking white flowers Val. It is not easy to tackle negative shapes or background...<br />Lovely work!

Love the contrast in this.

Aren&#39;t they just gorgeous Val! I love negative painting, it&#39;s very effective.

Thank you Carole and Michael. Michael it&#39;s not often I feel in &quot;control&quot; of watercolour, more often than not it&#39;s completely out of my control :)<br /><br />Thank you so much Christine, Debs, Fiona, Bea, Helen and Satu your comments mean a lot.

Beautiful use of washes and light, Val - clean, fresh and uplifting. Super piece!
