    I watched a watercolour speed demo on YouTube yesterday and although it did not have any instruction on how the artist was doing this, I thought I’d try doing my own…mine is nowhere near as nice…came out a bit mushy looking, but I am pleased with what I did manage to do….probably just needed a bit more detail in it, but I like the softness of it.

    Yes, very nice. And I agree about a little more detail taking care of the “mushyness.” on the shadow side of the flowers and the centers. Just lovely and great job with the hard and soft edges.

    Lovely colours agree with RL maybe a bit more detail with some darks can be added . You have done a great job with the sort edges.

    I love the mushiness!

    Mushy looks to be a great effect you have developed, wet into wet painting can be a bit of a live life on the edge process as the results can be a little unpredictable. But I think you have done well, depending on the size your painting would look great as a card, or obviously framed.

    Beautiful as is! I rather like the mushiness as well, if that’s what it is. 😉 Just a lovely effect!
