Painting a bouquet of flowers in watercolor

My subject for this week is this beuatiful bouquet of flowers.

For this painting, i work form my real life bouquet instead of painting from a picture like i’m used to. It’s very different to paint like that. Firstly because my point of vue can change with any movement I make. And which each glance i get from my bouquet i see something different. The image is not fixed on a screen or on paper. It’s alive !

The colors are very light and pastel. So far away from the colors of fall ! But it’s always fun and a little bit challenging to paint all these nuances of mauve, pinks and tender greens.

There is no important difficulties on this painting. I wanted something very soft and poetic so i was very attentive at getting soft edges and hard edges with the right amount of details.
