Cyril,

I have an Instagram account but don't now how to use it.  If I did, I would LIKE this painting, but might suggest some better dark/light contrasts. 

I understand where there might be some patches of haze in the background, but there seem to be little halos of haze around the flowers in the foreground.  If not intentional, maybe take the corner of a piece of household sponge and dip it into a light and a dark green and dab lightly on the haloed areas to see if it blends them better.  Have a paper towel or rag ready in case it does not look better.  I'd try both light and dark on the same sponge and just flip from side to side.  No sense dirtying two sponges.

I love your work, Cyril, halo or no halo.

Hi , Mea, thankyou for the comments & ideas.... I allmost forgot these techniques , will give a try out.

Instagram works on hash tags. i.e #tag1 #tag2 ....
To post on instagram  -- click on + , select picture you want to post , in caption we need to add the hash tags ...for general watercolour  tags are   #water #watercolour #sketchdaily .... hint : Try to get tags from other artists Post

Hope this helps.

 :thankyou: for the watercolour technique hint ..will work on to improvise..

I think this is a very Instagram worthy painting Cyril. I love it. Lots of detail and enough loose areas to ensure it doesn't look tight. (For me watercolour must be a bit loose to conform to the flowing nature of the medium) :congrats:

I like this one Cyril :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Just the front right hand tree is lacking depth. I suggest filling it in a bit more O0
