The colors were what drew me in, but I found out I also love just about everything else about this piece as well. It's so realistic, yet dreamy at the same time. Bravi. :D

I love how you used the colors to make this painting calm you!

Alright thank you. My friend is an artist and I wasn't sure what to get him. Thank you so much for the advice! :)

I use Winsor & Newton's half pan watercolors. They're a bit more expensive but a little goes a long way because they're richly pigmented. Watercolors in pan form are also better than the tube form, in my opinion
