James - your painting is wonderful - The vase of flowers looks great as does the bowl of chips & the glass - I like the way you balanced the picture with the greenery & how "Chips & Hips" are helping each other with the bottle - great!

Judy   C&C appreciated

Judy your rose is beautiful, one day I hope to draw a rose.  I have tried and what a mess of a beautiful flower I make.  Your drop of water are good also.

Jen what a wonderul kind thing to say you would have to study my droplets!  I took my water drop lesson from Watercolour Painting Techiques.  Helped me a lot.  Your rose is nicely done bright, happy colours...

James, "Party Girls with Wings"  look like they are planning to have a little fun.  Nice picture good strong background.  I like the wings.

James great job on the glass vase and flowers and the bottle of tipple the fairies are up ending. It is good to see the fairies back in action and having fun. No doubt the frog is lurking to join in when all the work is done. What size is the painting? I like Sam's title "chips and sips" !

Jen C & C's always welcome

Thank you all for the very kind words on my yellow flower. I'm off to see the Dallas baby boys on Friday. Wish me luck the three and a half month baby weighs 18 lbs and rising and is 26" long. I will need a crane to lift him. Pray for my back and all the other creaky bits!!! Off to find my witches outfit! Today is gorgeous and I have flung open all the doors and windows. The leaves are bursting with colour too. Be back in November! Holly we had a deal girl!!!

Jen C & C's always welcome

James- I like the way you do a challenge and add your own ideas and themes and it's always fun. The flower vase is well done  and is a center of attention. Then you added a bowl of chips which is also looking good. The theme is the fairies are having a party ..such fun! Why don't you call it the way it is: "Fairy Fun Party" . Good job as usual. Love the BG too.

Jen- I am always envious of you having fun going around visiting family and sometimes you even went across the pond to visit your aunt. Such a fun life you are having. We will be missing you, enjoy your trip Girl.

  Right Hug Sandi

C&C are welcome and appreciated.

We had our doors and Windows open here in Indiana too.  Rain is on the way for tomorrow.  Great time of the year.

Hello, This is my first time in this forum challenge. I had drawn out a picture of the Foxgloves to paint but thought before I did a big one I would practice on a little painting first. I did these this morning using just a brush and watercolor. I needed to get a sense of the color and shape of the flower. I've never used these colors before and I really love them. I can't wait to sit down and tackle the bigger one of these flowers.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

Catherine, welcome aboard. We are always pleased to get new members and it looks like we will enjoy your work. I can see why you love those colors. That cool pink is so pretty against the violet background.  You have a nice loose style  I can see that the light is coming from the right.  When you do the larger painting, I suggest that you get darker on the insides of the flower.  The light isn't able to get in there as well and it would be darker in there.  Maybe a little of the violet mixed with the pink would help to darken it.

This is a pleasing painting and I'm looking forward to seeing the larger model.
