What a fantastic, vibrant painting. I think it's the whites between that make those colours sing out :0) Wow!

I have to tell you, your latest expressive watercolors have left their mark on my psyche. I woke up this morning thinking about a portrait and how I should do it and immediately thought of these blocks of colors you use. Not sure I can do it justice but might have to give it a try!
