Thanks, ladies.

Val - I must confess that I gave up on the knife painting on the flowers and had to stipple them to get them finished. I have to learn to control the knife better.  The flowers could still use better shading, though.

Patricia - I love this, too.  I will try the same technique on other flowers.

Mary Lou - I am quite proud of the pot.

Well done Mea.
It is clear that your flowers are in a sunnier climate than mine.  :)

Thanks, Dirk. 

I really like the knife technique now that the painting is drying.  There's such volume and dimension.  I did use a stippling brush towards the end because I could not control the knife.  I just need to practice more.
This was a very rewarding lesson.

well done Mea, lots of lovely texture :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

also just darken your shadow cast by the pot - you can wait until the painting is dry then do a glaze O0

Thanks, Danielle.  Yes, impressionistic is a lot easier.  I'm basically lazy.

Thanks, Nolan.  I'll make those tweaks.  I really loved this lesson.  My friends and family love this painting.
