Flowers on Rehov Balfour


(click to big)
Transparent Watercolor  14x20 cm

Roses are in season right now, 10 sheckels (about $2.50)  for 10, so even though they barely last a week, I buy 30 at a time and enjoy the mass of warm color that picks up the color of the building across the street on Rehov Balfour so nicely.  Part of living near shuk haCarmel is the wealth of fresh flowers in addition to fresh vegetables all the time.  I love my life here.

Thanks to Karin Jurick for the inspiration. She posted a photo of some things she sees and loves every morning: a buddha and hydrangeas flowers.  I didn't really relate to her loved things, but I certainly related to loving to see them in the morning and just traded my "view" for her's.
Thanks, Karin!

Love this composition! You did a great job conveying the sense of space with the scene across the street and the reflections on the tabletop.

The saturated color here is fantastic. Yours really stands out from the crowd, great job!

Beautiful watercolor in every way.
I like how you transpose your view from Karin's. That would be a great exercise for all of us instead of doing the pictures that is presented but with similarity the way you did . : -) I will have to try this.

I'm not an artist, so I can't say anything smart about sense of space or saturated color, but wow! That is gorgeous!

I love the abstract quality of the piece - the shapes, arrangement of saturated colors against unsaturated, spaces broken up into interesting interlocking puzzle pieces!
