Just lovely--the composition is so pleasing, and I love the soft way you've painted the background.

Wonderful watercolor effect. So loose and transparent. Great job!

Beautiful watercolor, Ann!

Ann,
I saw the photo reference that you used: the copper colander and the table surface presented some significant challenges. However, you were certainly up to it. Great job!

Thanks Ann for the great photo for our Sept challenge. I have tried doing it in colored pencil and water color and still not as good as the one you show here. Love the greens and your color of copper.
