Hola Blaga. Felicitaciones por estas dos hermosas acuarelas, me encantan los crocus por los suaves colores. ¿Los blancos los realizaste raspando aún húmedo?, eso le da un toque especial. Saludos

Dear Blaga,
So lovely paintings! It's your personality.
Cheers, Sadami

Oh yes, definitely spring here , a breath of fresh air, lovely spring flowers ! Last year I had a lot of Crocuses in my garden, they haven't bloomed yet even though they should have...good to see them at least in a painting :-)) xx

Judy said...

I love your spring flowers! How did you do the grasses in the crocus painting? Really good!

Judy said...

P.S. Happy Easter!

Lovely perspective on the bottom one, you really make it feel as if the close up flower is allmost falling out of the painting. Great!
And the top one is a lovely chose of colours and you have caught alot of light. Beautyful! Happy easter!

Dear Blaga March has not been a month of spring,here ... Apart from the greenhouses, everything is really back.
  Extraordinary joy to see the spring after a long wait ... is not the first year that happens after a rainy and snowy days, the spring seems like a miracle.
Have a good week, glowing as the flowers you painted.
Hugs, Rita.

Gracias, Mercedes! No levanté color, trabajé en húmedo sobre húmedo dentro de la flor evitando las zonas claras. ( I didn't lift color, I worked wet-in-wet within the flower avoiding the light areas.)

Thank you, Sadami, you're very kind!

Maybe they are still to bloom, Jane. My little garden has snowdrops, un-melted snow, one impatient crocus, and a lot of green stuff coming up... it is so exciting watching it change every day!

Thank you, Jane Minter!

Thank you, Judy! I used good-old-fashioned scratching, of course, and this time I got the timing right :)

Thank you, Catharina! It is funny that after I read your comment I liked the tulip painting better :)

Thank you, Polly!

Thank you, Rita! From now on, the weather can only get better. There's no way back!

Ciao Blaga, anche io come te ho scelto dei fiori per il mio ultimo post. La speranza è che la primavera arrivi davvero, visto che fino ad ora è stata piuttosto fredda.
Complimenti per i due splendidi acquerelli, i crocus li trovo stupendi! Un abbraccio.
