Cyclamen

Cyclamen2, watercolor sketch on Langton cp, 18 x 14 cm

Cyclamen1, watercolor sketch on Arches cp, 17 x 14 cm
Two small sketches of the adorable potted flowers I got for my birthday. I love Cyclamen, and this particular one resembles more the wild variety, than the larger and more formal cultivated plants. I also took the opportunity to try the "Opera rose" W&N shade, which admittedly cannot be produced by any of my DaVinci colors.

Hola Blaga:¡Feliz cumpleaños con atraso!!! Con respecto a los cyclamen te han quedado de maravillas por la suavidad de colores y el juego de dejar algo incompleto. Bellisimas!!!!

Quelle délicatesse. J'aime beaucoup ce mélange de précision et de flou. Vraiment, ce sont 2 aquarelles très réussies.

love cyclamen too and Opera Rose. I finally bought some one ebay of all places and I Love it. Such a pure bright pink and it fits your paintings perfectly, especially the second one with the little bud over that glorious leaf.
peace n abundance,
