# 62 The Flower Seller
Since its winter here in Kolkata, and flower season, little makeshift stalls of flowers appear! This is one outside my weekly market, and made such a wonderful picture with the brightly coloured gladioli, and marigold garlands, off set with tube roses and ladies lace! I tried to paint it at the spot, but a crowd gathered ever so quickly, and I haven't got the confidence to paint while people look on! So I took a picture. I like some bits of this picture, like the brightness of the sun on the flowers in contrast to the shade of the stall it self. I still feel I should have done it more wet, so that the background colours melted in better. I don't like the hard lines that are around the tops of the flowers! I should have used some masking fluid, I think. Its a good practice picture though!
