I just started taking PB classes about 5 days ago.  I do a lot of trading in ATCs (artist trading cards), so this is 2.5x3.5 inches
All constructive feedback welcome & appreciated!

You're on a roll now, KP.

Love the cosmos.  Nice job on the background, too.

Nice sense of depth in the bouquet.

Just finished my first real experience with watercolours. I loved it! Note to self - use smaller brush when applying masking agent to for the stems and receptacles of the flowers. I was left with big fat white areas to try fill in which took away from the final result. But to be honest im surprised and happy with it overall. Dennis thanks so much, I really learnt a bucket load and my interest in watercolours is definitely piqued.

Trev,

There's a lot to like about this cosmos painting.  I like that you choose your own color scheme - like the orange and yellow flowers.

I like what you did with the background - has almost a mosaic feel.

I feel your pain on the masking fluid ordeal.  My first attempt with it was a disaster.  Ripped a layer right off the paper!

Keep at it, Trev.  You are on the right track.

 :confused: For some unknown reason this thread is showing up with a strong turquoise background making it impossible to see anything other than the actual paintings and avatars! Anyone else seeing this?
Cheers, Val

Val, my screen is also doing the same. Will check with Nolan how to revert it to normal.  I think someone pressed a wrong button somewhere.
