New Watercolor..."Hidden Perfection"

Hidden Perfection
7x9 1/2 watercolor on paper

This is my latest watercolor painting and this time I am pleased. I just wish the colors were a little more accurate in the photo...going to have to work on that some (in my free time).

My framer and dear friend...has these wonderful huge display windows and is doing a 'Wine' themed window for August-September. I hope to get a couple more pieces done before the end of the month. After the 'Sea Shell' fiasco...I considered putting away my paints! Soooooo glad I didn't.

I promise, when the window is done I will post pictures. As always...I'm open to critique. I know it is difficult from the photo. The original has stronger burgundy tones on the leaves and grapes. There is even some in the background that seemed to 'take' more purple in the photo.

My camera will do a 'custom white balance'. If I have time I'll try to set that up next time. Love my camera...the lens is great at capturing detail. I think it's the lighting that's throwing off the color.

What a beautiful painting - I love the colors in the grapes, and how the purples are hinted at in the leaves.

Truly beautiful! I'm so glad you didn't put your paints away.

Beautiful! You are so talented.

Thank you...actually there is more purple and magenta in the leaves than what shows in the photo.

Karen and Jennie,
You are good for the ego and yes, I too am glad I didn't put my paint away. Gonna keep them out for awhile yet.

Gosh Marsha, this is really lovely! You have done a great job handling the watercolour. I look forward to seeing the window pics. :-)

Thank you, I'm getting there. I still 'fiddle' too much but at least stopped before I did any great damage. I promise to post pictures of the finished window. It isn't to be redone until sometime in August.

Will post my latest painting later today and hope to get still another one or two done in time for framing.
