Cyril,

Finally caught up with messages and realized I missed commenting on your hibiscus.

Lovely, beautiful coloring.  Outstanding background.

I'm not painting in the order of the classes because I've painted in Watercolor before. I just love Hibiscus, so I had to do this one next! I have one that will grow flowers that look just like this (that is, if I fertilize it!)

Beautiful hibiscus flower, but I'd make the leaves a bit darker.  Blue background is lovely.  Natalie is right, it has DRAMA!

Sherri, the  flower is nicely done, but see if you can smooth out the background. It is very spotty and detracts from the flower itself O0

Sherri,

Love the vibrant color on the flower. Good frilliness on the petals.

Dennis I am struggling with the background  how can I smooth it out?  I was trying to but it just seemed to get worse and worse. I am definitely doing something wrong. Could it be my paper or brushes??

Thanks Mea
