I love your colors, so rich. Great entry for DSFDF.

Beautiful colors in this - I was wondering if it was pastel, and then saw you did this in watercolor - very nice!

Dominique-- Again, you are so kind to visit and comment—thanks. I have been trying to keep my colors bright from the start. To tone down is easier than trying to brighten. So, that is my goal right now. Even mixing a little black to the final dark colors... something new for me.

Claire-- Thanks for the visit. Pastels-I have only done a few in my life. I think by staying with transparent watercolors at the beginning, makes them easier to modify later when needed (watercolor). Red is a color that is left to the end--mainly because it alters the other colors dramatically.
