 :heeha: I love this one Bert. You could always go back in with some stronger violet/purples and possibly some stronger highlights on some of the flowers. I'm thinking you would probably have to use gouache for that. Love it anyway!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

This is very inspiring for me, Bert.  Ikebana is very popular in Hawaii.  I had never thought about using it for line and wash paintings.

You did a very good job on this one.  I think Val's suggestions will give it the extra punch of color.
