A Redo




Yes, sometimes I look and see it differently, so I redid the Hollyhocks, I didn't like the first one at all, but as I said it was just putting brush to paper.. this one I added the top flower, did away with a lot of gobblygook  (technical term, for sure) in the background.  BJ

  1. Much better without the gg (gobblygook)! I'm kidding, it's beautiful! Glad you are back painting! All the best!

  2. Well, I liked the first version plenty, Ms. BJ. Green is my favorite color! That said, I do also like version two with the extra flower added. Your work is just so pretty.

  3. It is beautiful! And I like both too :0)
    I picked up my watercolour brush for the first time yesterday in over a year! I'm a little nervous about posting the results tomorrow but excited to have rediscovered the medium and I'll be using it a lot more from here on :0)

  4. Hi Barbara. Thanks for your visit to my blog the other day. It was so nice to see you had dropped by. I'm so happy to see you painting again. I'm sorry to hear of your beloved Mary Louise. I am thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.

  6. I like the first one very much but I like this one even more. The extra flower makes for a more balanced composition. Excellent work as always BJ ... I so wish my watercolours would look as delicate as yours.

  8. I love them both. Your paintings inspire me to keep at it. Maybe someday I will paint as well as you. I just love the "gentleness" of your colors. We are having a "heatwave" here. It's in the 80's.I'm sure it won't last long but I am enjoying it.

  9. The addition of the top flower adds a lot to the composition! It's wonderful. I think it's wise to redo or rework paintings in order to improve not the just painting, but to improve as an artist. Awesome.
