I think Nolan said that the single medium classes are all full. Just the VIP (all classes) has spaces left.

great job Sharon. To fade out, add more water to the colour, then wipe off the the excess paint on your kitchen roll first so you are basically just adding a colour wash, ie., the background colour is still shining through.

You can also still add the sunlight reflections to the right hand side of the front strawberry too O0

OK - I added some highlights to the right side of the front strawberry and redid the shadings on the left side, making them lighter as they moved away from the berries.  My friends can't believe how realistic these look in the photograph!

Nolan - if an opening comes up in the acrylics club, can I be put on the wait list?
Thanks!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks Zayn, Nolan and Natalie! And your suggestions Nolan, while small made a huge difference. Since this photo is from morgueFile can I sell this painting? Someone has asked me if they could buy it but I said I had to check with you first.
Cheers,
Sharon
