Hi Rina,
I hope you don't mind me asking, but do you use any opaque material over your watercolors? Or it is all pure transparent watercolors? Specifically I'm wondering what medium you used for her body and face. Thanks very much :heart:

Any questions are welcome. :aww:

No, I do not use opaque material in this piece. To be honest, I hardly use white gouache or the like in my work. So this is all pure transparent paints. If I use something other than watercolor, I'll usually state it in my comment. :)

Hello! I'm making a series of art videos about flowers, and I was wondering if I could include this piece in one of my videos. IT would be set to an original classical-style composition (by me) about this flower. I'll be sure to credit you and link to your page if you say yes.

Oh my... I loved the color combination! You practically used all the chromatic spectrum :XD:
The colors are arranged excellently, I can see a tidy sequence on them. The combinations are harmonic, so the painting is quite pleasant for the sight.
Also the amount of details is amazing, your patience for make this kind of artwork is admirable :O

That is indeed amazing. How did you do the background?? I love how the flowers and their petals point towards the girl, which looks like the focal point of this piece. It's nicely balanced in terms of colors from the top and bottom. It kinda makes you look at the picture from bottom to top--at least for me it does. :D

It is the effect of salt in the background. :)
