White Almond Flowers

I recently completed this floral watercolor...it is from a photo provided by the online group I am a member of - the Watercolor Workshop, and is their "all paint from one photo" painting "white" project for December.  The photo was taken by Roger Brown and was posted on PMP web site.   The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.
I tried to reach a balance between "tight" and "loose" in this and am happy with the results.
