Well done with the painting. You will not believe but this class opened the door for me to almost only painting flowers in my art career. I only paint in oils and it is a wonderful medium to work with.

 :thankyou: JayJ - Thank you for the encouragement. I am sorry to learn about your allergy. And you know what///  that explains the severe headaches I have been having for the past 1 week! The turps are getting to my head - if that's how you say it  :2funny: Yea its certainly the solvents I am trying - there is a thinner to clean brushes and then there is distilled turpentine that I use for dipping briefly before I pick up another color! I need to check the ventilation in my room too!  :o Thanks you solved a problem for me.  :thankyou:

 :thankyou: Maryna - oil does glide smoothly, love how butter like it is, I can imagine following your path and doing more flowers in oils... in fact I want to pain this very same rose in 3 more different colors!!! Thank you for sharing your experience and for the encouragement means a lot!  :thankyou:
Carpe Diem!

 :thankyou: Belma, thanks for sharing your handle on Insta, I love following your artworks too!  :) I have not tried to paint snow yet, I am sure it will be challenging yet fun!  I have saved the same rose in blue, green, pink and yellow using photoshop ;D - guess we are in for a polyptych!

This is such a wonderful and warm group!
Carpe Diem!

I finally finished my rose painting, I had a really difficult time with this one.  My week was really busy, and I was interrupted a couple of times and had to restart  :tongue:....
  I am trying to finish up another and having trouble also.  :(
