Claudia, your fasching/carneval characters are great. I like how you placed the characters in different directions and the background with all the people and buildings all in one colour. It gives the painting nice depth. You have done such a good job with the coloured pencil on all the details of the costume.

Marsha, glad to hear you are starting to feel better.

Shameer, you created  a nice loose and dynamic watercolor of the town and castle. The diffenent tones of yellow you used are beautiful and give it a bit of a spring feeling.Or, I have to correct mysef here, with the trees in the shades of red it could be also early autum, anyway it is a very nice composition and the warm colors are good for our souls over here.Wink. Very nice. I looked at it in the member gallery,  too. ..Thanks for posting it.

Charlie, Marsha  and Shameer thanks for the comments on my Fasching character

 

C&C always welcome

Thanks to all for the nice thoughts on my new avatar, and for the comments on the sketches,  No I don't think I will add any paint to them they are just sketches.  I'm not happy with one of the skates so I plan to work on it and yes they need to be grounded with a little shading.  Thanks again.

Joyce

Claudia, you handled stripes beautifully before and now checks! Nice job. Like how you made the crowd recede with the diff. coloring and also made the main char. stand out this way. Have a nice trip this wkend.!

Shameer Khan - I think this last one is your best work to date, but that's my opinion. Great job with everything.

Marsha - no need to apologize at all. I value your opinion, but glad to find out you were able to see the full image later.

In keeping with the theme, I thought of this watercolour I did some time ago, when I fist started painting. My  granddaughter in my flower garden, each dear to my heart. This is the spring with short iris, chives and larger alium, in front is creeping phlox. For anyone interested the chives are a fav of bees, and the larger alium a fav of butterflies. Kayla looks a little older than she was and although her arms are long, not quite that long. I gave it to her for her birthday so don't not sure of  the size, app 8x10 on arches w/c paper.

Bonnie your painting of your granddaughter and the flower garden is beautiful.  If you had not mentioned the arm I would not have noticed it being a little long.  I wished I would have something like that from my grandparents.  She will treasure it especially when she is older.   There are a lot of darks and highlights that makes it more interesting. 

Very well done.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.

C and C always welcomed
