It's looking better now, Jennylynn.  Still, should be more pale yellow, but it's better.   :)

Work it any more and you just might put a hole in your paper.  It's happened to me!   :tickedoff:

Dennis, I must say, I really appreciate that you showed us this technique for lifting paint from our paper.   :thankyou:

I will definitely put it to use when I need to use it.

Tina, you paint so well!  I love your daffodils, such nice work.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

How in the world did you get such an even wash on your background?   :confused:

I painted the daffodils today and really struggled with the background.  I'll post it tomorrow.

I'm slow as usual, but here are my daffodils.
 

Perhaps should have put more texture in the white flower, but I was afraid of losing the white.

The background, not so good.   :thumbdown:

Hello Tina.
Alizarin Crimson is a dark red leaning towards blue. I can't read the tubes in your picture but is most similar to colour no.2  in your paint set.

Lillian, your daffodils are very well done! I see nothing wrong with your background. Gives the impression there are other things back there.
