beautiful work. :-)
Great work, really nice interpretation about the theme.Regards.
Lovely illustration--the lightness and texture of the watercolor were perfect for the lightness of the dandylion.
Hi Caroline, beautiful work. I had a good look at your blog and I enjoy it so much. will be on of fav reads with coffee. It looks really beautiful your home in Malaysia....I rememeber my expat days abroad in Copenhagen, Seoul, Korea, etc. I miss them very much. Enjoy every moment. Are you there for a long time. Best wishes to you...Lisa Ps..Thansk for your lovely comments on my blog about cats..
Wonderful, really dig the way you worked the blue into the background.
What a lovely interpretation of the theme. The dandelion itself is particularly beautifully handled!
What a nice portrait. It makes me nostalgic.
I hate working on watercolor paper because I have a hard time controlling it...nice that you can! Really like how the texture of the paper shows through without overwhelming the work...
Gorgeous! I love the deepness of her eyes against the delicacy of everything else. You know, I had heard "dandelion clock" before, but I never knew why they were called that until this week. Love this painting!
Thank you everyone! Appreciate you leaving your comments - spurs me on!This watercolour was done on cold press paper - I usually use the much smoother hot press which is less forgiving, and I found it easier laying in washes, but more difficult to render the dandelion as carefully as I would have liked. The background has a touch of watercolour pencil on it which shows up the tooth of the paper. The girl's hair in the original is a much more subtle blonde! Or maybe it's just my monitor making it look so brassy!
It's such a wonderful thing to do, I still love it! Beautifully rendered!
Love the sentiments and the colors that you choose. Nice work!
Very beautiful illustrations!
This is really lovely Caroline. Very light and delicate. Your watercolours are so beautiful. I really enjoyed the photos of the Chinese Lion. I would have had my hand over my eyes most of the time after seeing how high up those dancers were on the poles. I am a bit scared of heights. The Chinese do amazing things with costumes.I also enjoyed the photos of the Golden Chalice flowers. Your photos are really lovely and beautifully composed.
Nice illustration. It makes me want to get the old watercolors out again. I like your art and also your photos. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I was curious about who was visiting from Malaysia.
Great great work :o)
Great illustration! I can really "see" this little girl blowing...the way you've handled her mouth, the look in her eyes, great job!
Beautiful illustration. I gave you an award on my blog:)
What a great idea for the topic, and beautifully done. Some welcome sunshine in this weather!http://rachelhoward.wordpress.com

Beautiful colors and textures. Love that beautiful blue! Really lovely painting.
Thank you for passing by. I love to read your comments!
