Stina,

I always say that you win by challenging yourself to do it.  Good on you, you persevered.

Riya, when you finish it you can post it in the encourager section. I'd love to see it if you feel so inclined.  :)
Cheers, Val

Stina - I love your flower.  I had the same problem with erasing and I didn't figure out how to blend colors - gotta love the learning!  Me

Beautiful hibiscus, Maryarsha!  Is that a caterpillar crawling across the branch?

Yes, I was going to name the picture "Caterpillar from Outerspace," but decided not too.  I notice that only a few of us painted the caterpillar - I personally thought that it was the most exciting object in the picture and I couldn't wait to figure out how to paint it!  Didn't quite do it as well as others..

Thanks Mea,

Aloha
