Thank you so much for this class Dennis! Brought me out of my winter painting lethargy. I can start to feel the exitement again and my fingers are getting restless again to paint more...   :smitten: :cheering: :cheering:

I did this yesterday night under a normal bright lamp. Now during daylight the colours are more bluish. Do you think I should add some crimson to the Lupines?

This is big size: 30x40 cm, 300 g/m2 WC paper.

Very nicely done, Gita.
different types of lighting is always a problem when painting at night.
You can also make the lupines red or orange as they come in many colors  O0

Liking this very much Gita. I agree a few dabs of brighter colour would really bring more life to the painting.

Beautiful work.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Beautiful Gita.  All you need is to brighten the flowers a bit.  Very nicely done! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Dennis for the advice. Thanks Val, Mary-Lou for the suggestions.
I revised this now: some additional colour to the flowers, some Gouache leaves, revised the steps. The photo looks a bit dull but in real this is a lot better.
I think I should put my brush down now.... ::)

Very nice lesson Dennis.  Had a bit of an issue with the sky and lost those two people by the trees.

Mar Lou

It is better than you think it is.  The two people are there, maybe it's best that they not stand out and take away from the beauty of the scene.

Very good, Mary Lou   :clap: :clap: :clap: One of the nicest skies I seen in a long time, with the beautiful granulation in the blue and the soft edges on the clouds. Just soften down those parallel lines in the main cloud to make it even better  O0

Thank you Gita, Patricia, Mea and Dennis. I appreciate the positive feedback.   Dennis, thank you so much.  My sky did not look like yours so I thought I messed up.  Here it is with those lines removed.  My photo is slightly different the first was taken in daylight and this was taken at night with flash

Thank you Dennis, Mea and Val.  I saved this by using a Mr. Clean pad that was only slightly damp.  Worked beautifully.

Very dramatic :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I find that the lupines in front tend to have a halo around them. Could an off white pink / purple glaze not soften those white halos?
