Blossom Collection by SuperSymmetricCake Blossom Collection by SuperSymmetricCake
Blossoms painted in watercolors for my mother. :meow:

After my first watercolor painting, [link] , I wasn't too pleased with the results, so I though 'Heck I'll do something with brighter colors!' I like this color scheme a lot better, and I think one can see (some) evolution of the technique.

Alone they seem pretty dull, but together they make a beautiful collection, I think.

The original pictures are (from left to right):

I made some color tweaking so that they looked like part of a whole.

Comments? Your fave? Suggestions for improvement? All welcome :D

Beautiful work! Really great work at making them look like they belong together.
The third one is my favourite. I like your a little bit softer background which gives such a beautiful contrast to the flowers.

Thank you very much :D The first one has the original color scheme and the other two were adapted to go together, I'm glad it worked.

Watercolour is tricky to get right, I find. These are wonderful. And right.

This is beautiful! :love: I love how, even though the photos are from different people, you made them look as though they belong together. (: The coloring you used truly made the piece complete, too. :heart:

Thank you so much!
I pretty much used the same colors in the three pieces, and used the photos only as light/darkness guides.

Just between you and me, I have to say: the one from your photo is my favorite :aww:

Ooh, so pretty. You make the flowers I painted for my mom seem pretty crappy in comparison lol.

Aww don't say that! I had to use the photos as a reference, otherwise they would be really misshapen ^^;
besides, what matters is that you did it for her, so I'm sure she'll love them :D

I guess...but I used her flowers as a reference and they still ended up looking crappy on paper xD. Maybe it's cause it was my first time painting in years... :iconrainbowtearplz:

Oh in that case you should definitely practice! My first watercolors looked terrible because I still didn't have the skills and technical knowledge.

I'm sure the more you do the better you will become :D Go go go!
