Oh Sarah, gorgeous.  I agree with everyone, don't touch a thing.  It looks like an audobon print.

Ah Brian.. the only reason you think your butterflies are not so colourful...is because they are too close to your blinding personage!  :heeha: 8)

Excellent Denise.  :clap: :clap:

 :clap: :clap:  Brian and Denise both your paintings are excellent.  I just LOVE the different take on the same painting.  By the way Brian, don't kid yourself,  the birds will just love yours too.  Denise your background is excellent.  Something I struggle with for whatever reason.  Perhaps not wet enough as I get stripes, cauliflowers and blotches of colour.  Anyway, very well done both of you.  Patricia

Brian, I actually think your colors are more cohesive and less opaque. Besides they actually have a background to blend into if a predator comes! :2funny: 
Denise!!!!! That bg is to die for!

 :clap: :clap: Great work everyone, in fact excellent work from one and all!!! :clap: :clap:
 
I was there, I watched, I painted and then everything went kerflooie. . . . I'm not used to not being able to turn Dennis on and off. . . .perhaps I should say, stop and start Dennis!
So no matter that he was going slowly, it was way to fast for this rank amateur. . . . Then. . . . .when I was looking at Dennis and not at my table, one small black cat jumped up and walked over my wet paint!!!
That was the end of that. . . .although I was making such a mess of things, she didn't do any real damage! :2funny: :2funny:
I will, however, try again. . . . slowly, very very slowly! So Sarah stop pulling out your poor hair!! :2funny:
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!
