Susan- Nice to see you again. Your flower is SO.... fantastic and colorful as always. I was thinking about blue BG too but you'll never know, I might come up with something else or again, may not.

I really miss you and others who I haven't seen for awhile.

Hi All Big Smile

Got a chance this evening to pop in & check things out. A few of the artists have been busy already, that's great. I'm falling a bit behind - the weekends are my time to catch up on painting usually.

Bob - that is stunning! I love the softness to it, and yet you have a few hard edges as well. Gorgeous blending also. 

Fred - when I saw yours, I got the biggest smile on my face. So glad to see you have not lost your touch. This is fun, whimsical, just a great painting. 

Susan - very vibrant colors. Love your yellows, and the bit of blue in the flower really makes the red pop.

I hope to have something to post soon, maybe after the weekend. I hope some of the newbie's join in, it's always so much fun to have a group participate!  I look forward to seeing everyone's work!

Catch you all later

Nan

Fred, I've seen your bears numerous times on the Wet Canvas Watercolor Gallery site.  What fun they are.  You should start a cartoon strip!

Susan, what a nice, bright interpretation of the hibiscus.  I like your addition of the blue center - it looks great with the red.  The deep blue background does make the flower pop.

Nancie & Suzanne - Can't wait to see! Big Smile Mine is still at the "uglies" stage - will work on it more this weekend - - and maybe start it over again if I can't get the "uglies" out!  Angry

Wow, Bob - a musician, too!  A man of endless talents - how fantastic!  Hope you have loads of fun.  Invite some of your artist friends to join in our challenges - the more we have participating the more fun and the more learning experience we have! 

Off to work now - had to work 1 1/2 hours over this AM and will probably have to do the same tomorrow AM! Sleep UGH!

My Hibisus, The challenge was fun and hard.  I found it hard to get the flower to pop out.  Everyone who's flower is already posted did a wonderful job, the colors are great and the bear was cute.  Sorry the picture of my flower is so BIG!

Joyce

All C & C's always welcome

Joyce, Love the flower and esp. the leave. Very nice. You certainly have talent and the flower is not too big at all. Since you said that it's hard to get the flower to pop, a little suggestion here:- make the background in dark color and your flower will POP for sure. As it is, it's very lovely and refreshing. Well done! Keep painting. Can't wait to see your next one.
