 :welcome: to Paintbasket, subhadra and  :congrats: for already posting a painting!

That is very nice work!  I like the colors and the composition.  I like the bit if sparkle on the top of the flower pot and the look of fabric in the background.    :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Have you been painting long?  It looks to me like you've had some experience.  I'm happy you found Paintbasket.  You'll enjoy it, no matter what level you're at.

Welcome to PaintBasket Subhadra.  In my humble opinion this is quite pretty, but I don't see uniformity in light source.  Overall this is a nice composition that I am sure was tough to do.   O0

Thank you very much Kelley and Lillian for your valuable comments and suggestion. Yes, I completely agree with you Kelley that there is lack of  uniformity in light souce in my painting. I'll  rectify this problem in next painting. And Lillian, I have started doing water colour since last six months. :thankyou:

You've only been doing watercolor for six months???!!!  Amazing work!

Are you planning on taking in some of Dennis's live classes?  I've learned a lot from him.
