Beautiful azaleas, Denise.  Delicate and life-like.

You obviously mastered the masking fluid technique.  Your background is fabulous.

Hey Sue, not bad. I do agree with Val. If you would add some darks especially just behind your main flowers it would help them pop. The pink in the background causes the main flowers to blend in. What I do is wet the area I want more color. Lightly put the color in and then just with a damp brush soften the edges. That is what I did with some of my background. You are doing fine. just don't be afraid to do it. that is how we learn.  O0 O0 :1hug:

Thank you all for the encouragement....It wouldn't go on the forum like the other pics did. Don't know why.
Thanks, again, for your lovely comments.
