Ode to a dying Hyacinth

I hope I will be forgiven for this shameless portrayal of herbicide. This poor plant hasn't been doing to well despite our best efforts to keep it healthy...some plants just thrive better than others on the 17th floor of an apartment building. But it will not die in vain for it makes an excellent subject for practicing my watercolours.

Backgrounds are notoriously my nemesis because I never know what to do with them so I had a little fun with making water-marks. This may or may not actually help the painting, so I would be very interested to see what you think.
