What a stunning watercolor and lovely nature study!
thank you very much!
i had a 3 week watercolor seminar and i think i’m getting there.
and with this picture, it kinda clicked.
Whatever you were taught in that watercolor seminar certainly worked. I’m in love with this painting!
Once again, I am reminded of my grandmother. When I was a child she and I used to go for long walks. I preferred going with her to being with my endlessly noisy chattering friends because I was studying nature and learning about it from her. I remember once lifting a fern and seeing the same glowing mushrooms underneath and thinking I had arrived in fairyland. Of course I was only about 7 and still believed in fairies; so besides your wonderful technique, this also rung an emotional cord for me. Just love it!!! Do you mind if I save it to my desktop so I can look at it once in a while?
Beautiful “flykillers” how its called in Russia. When I was two – I ate one of this to show how cool I am to my brother, almost died, was saved by my grandmother and I remember how they cleaned me inside out. It is highly poisonous.
thanks for your nice words.
rose, it is definately reflected in your works how much you love nature.
you made a good choice going with your grandmother!
of course you can save it. if you want a bigger version i could send it to you.
we should be thankful for our grandmothers, huh? (nikira too ;))
nikira, you are luck to still be here and thank god for your grandmother. My grandmother taught me all about how poisonous these thinks are the day I lifted that fern, so I always admired them only from afar.
Thanks mono, I will save this just to look at it once in a while. It’s soooooooo beautiful!
@Rose, I am very thankful to my grandmother, she got me as a baby and raised me, which was not easy… she is my mother basically. One day I’ll draw her.
I am familiar with these, they are the fly Agaric or deadly amanita (Amanita muscaria) it is poisonous and psychoative…so the say. I never touch them.
