Super work Karen   :clap:   :clap:  Background is great, I really like the way you spread out the leaves. Looks more like a field of daffodils. Your white one is especially well done.   :clap:   :clap:

Nice job all of you that painted along, wish I could have joined you.  Will have to catch the relay.  Spring is a long time away, so though I love daffodils, won't be any live ones for a while.  Will have to rely on photos I guess.

Excellent Jenny! Great improvement in your flowers. I'm sure its much easier when you don't have paint and brushes flying about like a conductor run amuck!   ;D    :clap:   :clap:

Karen and Jenny, both paintings are good but be careful of making them too orange. The daffodils are are from a light yellow to a deep yellow with only a small tinge of orange.

 :thankyou:  all for your lovely comments, dennis I agree the "yellow"  daffodils are a bit too much orange,  will have another go  O0  and hopefully get the daffodils yellow lol

   this is the first one I did in class 
   this is the 2nd one io did   
   this is the third one!!   I had a go at changing the flower colour as dennis did in the class on sunday with the stretlitzia leaves,   worked very well.   I thought i would have a go rather than wasting the painting.   you have to be very careful but yes you can undo a watercolour painting!

Great, Jenny.  It sure makes a difference, and to give the "wash" a whirl....brave girl. It turned out perfect. I didn't think it was too orange til I saw the last one.  Super job.
