Dennis, Dennis, teasing us with great paintings like that is naughty. I'm just getting used to these Artisan Water Mixables and you come along and show me what can be done with watercolours (WC)!  :clap: Now I have a dilema...oils or  WC lol!  :-\ 
Beautiful works and very inspiring.  :painting: O0

Tony, you dont have to choose between w/c and oil. Just do both. Some artists dabble in all the medias.

Claude, instead of making  :santa: ride quite a few times, how about asking him to add the following in his bag:

a pen and ink set and some pastels as well  :devil2:

During next year I will be demonstrating how to combine them with watercolors for stunning  :painting:

Gloria, what a lot of artists do is to make their preliminary sketches in watercolor in order for them to test out the composition and the color scheme of their next oil painting.

Now they have at least 2 paintings for sale instead of one   :clap: :clap:

Now that they are making money, I wish I had more children.
If not now, when? If not me, who?

Hey Dennis, Nice work.    O0
Now I would be interested in learning how to work in watercolours. I have never done it. It looks kind of hard. But would like to try it.    :painting:
