My first try at using a knife while painting. It was great fun!

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Nice  shiny pot Sharon.   The bottom part of the vase is rounded a bit to much look at the sample with the paper roll Nolan showed in the lesson , you will see what I mean.   ( make straight lines on a piece of paper then glue it on an empty paper roll)  this is good to keep as a helper.

Wow, Danielle, that is an origional version. The white on the walls looks a bit like snow, but it could not be if the flowers are in bloom?.

Good on you, Danielle.  Wish I had your confidence to take a lesson and apply the techniques in a different composition.   Lovely, especially the door panels.

Yesterday, a friend came into my studio and fell in love with my version of this.  So, it became her wedding gift.  She was so happy as red geraniums are her favorite flower.

Nice work, Sharon.  Your door panels look nicely shaded and have nice crisp lines.  I agree with Danielle on the roundness of the pot.  Nice bright flowers.

Left to my own devices (drawing) I find I am useless at proportion and following lines.

Help Nolan, sonething looks skew to me, definitely sonething to do with the door, but I
cant put my finger on it!  Can you tell me what is wrong.  This is one of those paintings that would drive me crazy because something is not quite right :2funny: :2funny:

Nicely painted, I think what may be bothering you is the vertical/horizontal lines in the door are all 'leaning', making it feel a bit of kilter. Other than that it's beautifully done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :painting:maybe remove the lowest stone of the wall. Now the wall is quite a bit in ftont of the pot, but the flowers are in front of the wall.

great job, especially on the weathering of the door :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

There are two things wrong that Dirk & Val have pointed out:
1) Verticals remain vertical
2) The two flowers on the left can't overlap the wall according to the distance you have created. To allow them to over lap, you would need to show the floor higher up on the left. Alternately you would need to "hide" the two flowers by cutting the off where they disappear behind the wall (my favourite solution as you won't loose any depth)
