Herewith my latest. All comments most welcome. Unfortunately I was unable to follow the class on painting the Strelitzia but I'll try painting it again once I'm able to follow Nolan's instructions.

It's beautiful, Elizabeth.  The background really sets it off.

One of my favorites of all the Paintbasket lessons.
