White & Red Christmas Spirit

I loved painting a variety of Poinsettia in this piece: white, red, pink. The most exciting part was to paint the white one: pure reflections from the lights shining through to the pink violet and blue. I also decided to place white Poinsettia on the top as it is lighter; although the dark background would point out a good recognizable shape. This bunch will make pretty good Christmas Cards 🙂

  1. Dear Irina,
    Oh, so beautiful! The color contrast between the two poincettias is so interesting and eye catchy. Keep up!

    Cheers, Sadami

  2. How beautiful are these poinsettias! and they are also so hard to paint, I know because I tried so many times … but you're so talented, Irina, and you've created a beautiful watercolor!
