Blooming in the Pink

Blooming in the Pink

Superb. The pink blossoms on the grey background. It's great.

This is beautiful Seok Yam. It looks really 'alive' , my witch hazel is in flower at the moment in my garden and has the same effect of fragile beauty and the first breath of Spring. Thank you for all your lovely observations on my work.

un avant gout de printemps.....tres belle realisation bravo!!

Very delicate and beautifully painted in pastel.

Lovely delicate pastel painting.

beautiful, delicate. the lighter flash in the background towards the middle illuminates the composition.

Beautiful little pastel, so delicate.

I think that the others have already said everything and I agree! Beautiful!!

Wonderful image. Both bark and blossom beautifully captured.

Again a wonderful work. I love the fading out towards the sides of the page. Beautifully painted. Love the composition too and the subtile uniform background!

Delicate, beautiful, absolutely charming!

Oh - this is so oriental, delicate and beautiful. Such gorgeous colours - quite perfect.

This is absolutely wonderful. I don't know how you can get such fine detail in pastel. It should be in a book.

Thank you so very much for your kind comments, everyone - they are much appreciated! Diana, for the fine details, I used pastel pencils. I started off by including all the details in pastel pencils, then used pastels to finish off and accent of the petals and the branches. I hope it helps.

Very beautiful, It is brilliant to have a bit of greeen on the bark..

Thank you, Ping and Annette!

I don't know how I missed this absolutly beautiful painting, wonderful work Seok.

Hello Seok Yam Love your work, especially this beautiful sprig of blossom. Thank you so much for your kind comments on my bluetit picture. I'm busy working on a branch of apple blossom in coloured pencils at the moment.

Thank you very much, Linda!

Love this pastel Seok - such subtle ,delicate colours. It reminds me of a print I have by Chinese American artist David Lee. Thankyou also for taking the time to comment on my Still Life.

Thank you Seok for the comments on my pencil Christmas cake. I haven't been painting at all so this was a one off but it did make me come and look at your gallery again and I'd missed this utterly stunning picture. The flowers are so delicate hey look as if a puff of wind would blow them off. I would love to be able to get that delicacy in pastel.

Thank you, Diana! I always look forward to your postings and your latest certainly made me feel that it was worthwhile trawling through 2 weeks of backlog!

Excellent stuff Seok, I love these minamilist type cherry, whatever, blossoms, especially those with small birds flitting about. best Mick
