Magnifiquement mises en beauté. Avec des tons très inhabituels mais cependant très harmonieux.

Le rrose sono semprre un soggetto difficile, ma bellissimo. Tu l'hai fatto benissimo.

Blaga said...

Gracias Ina!

Mrecy, Lydie! J'aime les contrastes et la palette harmonieuse est inhabituel pour moi, mais j'ai décidé de l'essayer, et ca me plait.

Grazie, Elvi! Come tu, mi piace anche I fiori, e ha deciso di creare questi per il compleanno di mia cognata e per il mio.

Thank you, Jane! It's one way to warm this winter day :)

Gracias, Mercedes por sus amables palabras!

Hello,dear Blaga! wonderful watercolor: beautiful and sweet roses ...they express a delicate sense of love. Best wishes for ladies!

Isabelle said...

bel hommage que tu rends à ces roses et à tes belles-sœurs.j'aime particulièrement la palette utilisée

Blaga said...

Thank you, Rita, I'm glad you like the roses. In fact my sister-in-law and I happen to have the same birthday, but apparently I encoded the message too much :) I like the idea of sharing these roses in a way with all ladies to celebrate together with us.

Merci, Isabelle! La palette harmonieuse est une nouvelle expérience pour moi, qui me plaît. Quand je composait du texte à propos de ma belle-sœur et la sienne (moi), je pensais combien mieux cette phrase aurait en français - belle-soeur vs. sister-in-law.

Very classic treatment of this elegant subject -- the palette has a very old master feel to it. I love how you used a limited palette on the rose and made them look both graceful and fresh...
