I think the leaves could have been a bit better, and......  ;D

I'll go and get a photo of some of the ones growing around here and make it an original next time.  :)

Here is my rendition of Sterlizia Strelitzia in watercolor. Hope you enjoy the flower. Doina



I was just wondering, how did you manage to draw a line through the incorrect spelling of 'Sterlizia'?!

When you write/edit/modify your posting, highlight the word you want to be crossed, and look on the up left corner you have a buttun button with an "S" crossed. Ckick on that, and there you are. Doina
