Translucence is an effect unique to the medium of watercolor and the lure that beckons me into the studio for yet another creative adventure. (Michele Cooper)

  1. I particularly love the golf quote – boy will I be able to use that one! Lovely, very realistic work. You have captured the sparkle of the gem.

    • Hi Linda,

      Thanks for commenting on my post! I just checked out your blog and think your work is lovely. I was particularly taken with the geometric apple circles watercolor! I’ll visit again…
      🙂 Joana
