Val, you're amazing!  I'm blown away with the fact that you joined the class so soon after that long journey.


I'm glad you're back to your familiar painting spot and I'm looking forward to seeing your dragonflies.


You're getting betterer and betterer all the time!   :yippee:

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Well, i finally did it...my first watercolour lefthanded and i like it. I am not to happy with the eyes, paint was still wet so the purple mixed with the blue, and somehow i just don't get the eyes right. But i think i just did a nice job and i know now that i will be able to paint.

So i don't let you wait any longer..tadaaa

 :heeha: Its BRILLIANT!!!!! Riya, it actually has an expression on its face! Nothing wrong with the eyes, just gives this little fella character.
You really have done a banner job and proved to yourself you can do it. We all knew you could, but now you know. Take great pride in this....you know what's next.... sign it, frame it, and hang it!  O0

CONGRATULATIONS RIYA  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  You did a wonderful job on the dragonflies and with your left hand too.  Just shows you what you can do if you put your mind to it!!!  It is better than mine with my dominant right hand.  I am very proud of you and your achievement.  Carry on and we look forward to your next painting.

Riya - What an inspiration you are...what a wonderful job you did - I don't expect to do half the job you've done here!  I'm so happy that your painting door has been reopened for you and it took great courage to walk through it.  Thank you so much for sharing this remarkable achievement with us as well as a simply lovely painting.  Hat's off to you!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

WOW!!!  :heeha: I just don't know what to say.... :blush: .... :cloud9:  Val, Jani, Susan, Patricia and Rkymtnmary  :thankyou:  so very much for all your wonderful and encouraging comments. This is just what I needed being so insecure about what I do. But i know now that whit practise I will be able to paint like "the old days" righthanded. I still reach out with my righthand to pick up things, all that is possible too, but I dont use it much especially not for creating.
 I really wished I could effort buying some more lessons   :cost: :'(  eg watercolour or acrylic/oils but live is very hard at this part of the world, and there isn't much we can do  :( . But I still have some paint and paper, and some canvas and canvasboards, so I have the material even it is limited  :yippee: .
I still have some of the acrylic lessons that I bought and the free watercolour lesson, and ofcourse I can use all the templates Dennis put up for the lessons. I just look  :coffee:  at all your paintings for the colours, the technique is something different, but I think just being able to paint will be more than enough  :smitten: .
 
So, i myself look also forward to my next  :painting: .
Thank you again for your awesome comments and support,  :hug: :flowers: :flowers:
