Marsha, what an adorable portrait of "mouse and strawberry"! It does indeed look like a wonderful illustration from someone's long-treasured childhood book. This is a different look from you - you've very versatile.

James, you're always full of surprises on terms of versatility as well. This is a wonderful, sensitive portrait of Jen and Rupert - lovely. And colors in the re-posted "shaman" are GORGEOUS.

Catherine, a very good portrayal of the doorknocker. So impressive that you captured sych a complex subject so well within such a short time frame. I think that's a good exercise - to make ourselves do very quick sketches of what we see.

Sarah, such a lovely painting of the seaside at Bridlington. I like the way the little girl frames the foreground and her dogs are playing yet the viewer has a clear picture of the setting. It is the kind of painting that rekindles fond memories from childhood.

Marsha, what a sweet and well done painting of the mouse and the strawberry.  You are getting quite good with those pastels. 

Catherine, you did a good job with the door knocker.  It's looking good.  Did you use the graphite over the watercolor?

Thank you Alex, Sam, Ciusca and Jim!

. Sam I sketched it first and added the watercolors. I tweaked it here and there after all was said and done and I just used a pencil for that.

Marsha your door knocker looks great! I didn't use any blue in mine but when I do the second one on watercolor paper I'm going to use my artists Paynes Gray as it has a wonderful blue tone to it  I'm also going to pay close attention to the eye on the left side of the photo as Marsha you captured that angle and I didn't.

Hello my dear friends from AD, 

This is my contribution for the April all media challenge and my version for the ''sea and clouds''photo challenge.

It snowed again in Colorado and is really cold for this time of the year so I am just dreaming and hoping for sunny days like this!

I hope you will like it and have a wonderful day!!!

Cristina M.

Christina, i love it. I think most of us are ready for sun and warm and your painting says that loud and clear!! The colours are warm and lively and the green umbrella is a fun CI. Just hope she doesn't get soaked by the next playful wave! Well done, I hope you post more of your work. Could you tell us what size and medium your painting is?

Jen C & C's always welcome

Marsha, great rendition of the door knocker.  I like your mix of blue and green.  I'm assuming that you did the watercolor first and the pastels over that.  The highlights look really good and it's easy to see that they were done with pastel.

Cristina, it never hurts to dream and what a lovely thing to dream about.  The sky looks very good with the little fluffy clouds.  The sand is a nice color.   I can hear those waves washing up on shore.  Nice painting. 

Sam/Sammy     C & C Welcome
