update on light pink rose

I had done more on my light pink rose. For the background, I did it on wet-in-wet. 
For now, I'll shelve this painting and maybe next time I'll know what to do further to improve it. 
Have a nice day.

I just wanted to put something here today, so I posted this unfinished rose.
This is in watercolor, size 25x25cm in Hahnemuhle 300g paper.

Pansy in violet

At the moment we have a pot in our balcony full of mini flowers of pansy in violet-dominated color - see the second photo. I bought the plant last March but it still gives lots of beautiful flowers which I enjoy looking everyday. Yesterday, I picked up one flower and painted it while sitting near a salon table - see the first photo. The painting is not what I had hoped for to be. I  tried to paint it in a loose style, but I guess I failed to do that. Anyway, I am in a practice mood so there are always many next times to try. The beauty of painting, at  least in my experience, is that it relaxes my mind while I'm enjoying the whole process.

I'm back

> Hello, blogger friends. I'm back from my Southeast Asia trip. It was a fruitful trip and I was able to do what I was supposed to do there. But the summer heat had me realized how vulnerable I am health wise.  At the moment I guess I need some days of rest to recover.
> During the trip I managed to make only few sketches with my pen and colored pencils. I'll post some of them here soon.
>Over this small painting, I started this during my trip with watercolor pencils and finished it last Monday with my regular watercolors. I had already painted this dog earlier but I was not really satisfied with the result then, so I tried the subject again to learn. Hope everybody is enjoying the last part of the spring season. Miss you all.
