Joyce, your lighthouse is very nice in watercolor. I like your big rocks.
Sam, your Red Poinsettia is very well done. I like the colors.
Sam ~ Luv your two colored renditions of the poinsettia! The red flower is very Christmassy but I think it covers the black ink too much. Your white flower is exquisite with just the faintest shadows of yellow, blue & violet (and red?). AND your ink work is still showcased. You are sooooooo talented!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Sam, these are beautiful. Love the red one, but then the white is elegant, hard to chose. Good idea to copy and try the different colours. I had thought I would not like the colour as much as I do.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Thank you Charlie. Nealey, Jen and Bonnie. I do value your input.
Jen, I didn't use very many colors and I did these very quickly. On the white one, I had a light and medium pink, light blue, light, medium and dark violet, and cream. The center is yellow, red and green.
On the red one, I used 3 shades of red, light, dark and medium violet, blue, orange and yellow. The center is also yellow, red and green

Hare in it's winter coat with black tipped ears. Scotland. Water colour
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Sarah, your winter hare is certainly on the look out. You can almost see his nose twitching. He stands out nicely in front of the little bit of greenery. Your slight change of shading colour on the hare really brings him to the front in a painting that is mostly white. Very nice to see a glimpse of Scotland from a hares perspective.
Sarah, you shaped the hare very nicely with blues and greens. He is well camouflaged in that white snow and green grass. You did the grasses and snow very well. The snow looks like it isn't pristine anymore and has picked up colors from the environment. Brrrrrrrr!
Sam, it's very interesting to see the versions of your poinsettias. Although all are lovely, I'm particularly taken with the original black-and-white one and experiment #2 - the white poinsettia. They are so unexpected and both so beautiful. I love that you're feeling up to creating art again.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Sarah, this is such an interesting and good-looking watercolor of the hare in snow. One of the things that makes it distinctive is the range of values you've portrayed in this white landscape.
Thank you one and all for the lovely comments on the hare, very much appreciated....this is the camel with the lettering added...if you can smell onions its because I was cooking just prior to writing the greeting !!!!
Sam and Sarah what beautiful work! I love both poinsettias Sam and like the idea of making copies and experimenting on those. Sarah your hare in the snow has such a wild feeling about it and I like that the light is not so bright as it wouldn't be most winter's days. Your painting of the camel has the most gorgeous colors! The background colors have such a rich oriental feel to them.
C&C's are welcome.

Sarah, your camel card is lovely. You certainly have mastered the art of calligraphy and your choice of red is perfect. I also like the stars and the suggestion of the town of Bethlehem. He is an elegant looking camel - perfect for a magi.
