Danielle,

Nice painting of the mountain. 

Love the bush on the bottom left corner.  Nice sky.

Snow(balls?) on the mountain look too much  alike.  Might look better as uneven patches of snow.  (Unless that's how they really look)

 :thankyou: robin, Natalie, Mea, Pinuccia and Val, for the lovely comments.
 :hug:
Mea in the picture there was lots of round snow balls, but maybe I could have made them more elongated.    :thankyou: For notecing.

Here's my attempt at Mount Ngauruhoe - I don't know which was harder - the painting or spelling the name of this volcano! My favorite part was doing the mist...
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,

Nice work on the volcano.  Nicely done sky.

Did Dennis explain what those two trees are in the center of the painting? They grab for attention -  I want to demystify them.

Danielle....I love your painting and the angry clouds set it off perfectly!

Sharon....Nice painting.  Your clouds are great, too.  You did a great job.

The paintings (last 3) are well executed.  :clap: :clap: :clap: Actually not an easy subject to paint even though it looks simple.
Mea those two "trees" are actually the very large species of flax and what you see are the "spread out" flowers on their stalks.  Most of the flax plants here in NZ are much smaller than those in the photo.

Thanks, Dennis.  Wonder if that's the same kind that produces the flax seed I put on my salad every night?

I wouldn't think so. These plants are big. In South African the woodpeckers and Barbets build their nest in the flower stalks which can be anything from 6" (150mm)  to 8" (200mm) in dia.
