Karen, your underwater painting is coming along wonderfully. The work you've done on the background turned out well and I agree with Jen's comments. Love the light on the fish and their vivid colours.
Jen, lovely painting of the children on the beach. I especially like the girls hair and outfit and the colour on the boy. I hope you have a good holiday with your grandchildren and maybe you will find some inspiration for another painting.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Sarah, your seaside village en-fete looks like an entertaining party. I don't know how you can get so much detail into a painting and have it looks very natural. I agree with Charlie, the buildings are well done. I really like the strings of flags (not sure what you call them) they add a real festive look to the painting.
Jen the children at the beach turned out great. Hope you have a great visit with the Grands.
Sarah another great seaside scene. I agree with Bonniethe flags make it very festive.
Im calling the fish done.
C&Cs always welcome
Karen, this painting of the fish is lovely. The colors are just beautiful and the background fades away in a most convincing manner.
Jen, your painting of the children at the shore looks like one I would buy at an art show - it is so evocative of childhood!
Sarah, this is a wonderful painting of the village en-fete. Very, very charming.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Karen, your fish painting is great. I love the colours and how they take center stage. They have a nice shape as well. Nicely done.
Sarah, such a typical seaside scene from across the pond. Nicely done. I reminds me of Charles and Diana's wedding when the whole country was swathed in flags and celebrations.
karen, love the fish, the painting turned out so well and the main character is such fun. You did such a great job of keeping the bg back and putting Mr. Sharpnose in front!
Thank you for the comments on the children. They were fun to do. I will get back to the fish one I began but couldn't get into. However Karen has set the bar high! Arrived at the grands okay will check in from time to time. Have fun painting!
Jen C & C's always welcome
Karen, beautiful work! Love the colors.
Thanks Bonnie...flags draped like that are called Bunting.
Jen thank you too...
I watched the royal wedding on TV but I thought they were making a big mistake at the time.. I was in Greece when she died so missed all the maudling sentiment...NOT ALL OF US (as the news reporters said/wrote) thought she was wonderful. Sorry to express my opinion..not the place.to do it especially as I am all in favour of the Monarchy!!!!
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Thank you Sarah, that is the word I was looking for. I heard it on a British show, so knew they had a specific name.
Jen ~ nice little seaside scene with the children! It's soft & thoughtful. Have a good visit with the Grands!
Karen ~ You did a great & eye catching painting of the fish. I esp. love the Lemonfish! Beautiful yellows.
Sarah ~ Your wc seascapes are always a pleasure to look at. And the garden snake doesn't bother me a bit! The only time I almost passed out was when an eight foot long milk snake caught me by surprise! It was lying along the concrete wall on the back porch & I didn't see it until it (she) wriggled away, revealing a bunch of her baby offspring!!!!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Last leap after a long journey...
evening light so quite dark strong colour. A4 slightly cropped. HP paper.
Sarah, the evening light, with its more saturated colors, is beautiful in this painting, as is your depiction of the water and the silvery scales of the fish. Plus, you've captured the movement and three-dimensionality. A lovely painting.
Sarah, your fish is very well done! I also like the waterfall.
Sarah, great painting. The rock ledge and the sparkling water are nicely done and perfect shape of the fish. I like the title.
Hello to Alex, Charlie and Bonnie...it's 80F here already 8-30 am.
thank you one and all for your kind comments. I wanted to give the salmon a slight twist but decided it was too tired after its journey!
I like the new you Alex....the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree... recent photo? mine was taken last year, doesn't time fly.
