Hi Val,
I am unable to upload my painting, I keep getting an "error" message. The strange thing is that I just uploaded a different painting without any trouble.
Can u help me? I can email it to you.
 :thankyou:

Maria,

Try making the file size smaller.  That is usually the problem.

Wow, Maria.  That is so well done.

When I have a photo file size that is too large, I bring it to PAINT and resize it.  Easy and fast.

 :thankyou: So much Val,
Media used: Gouache, watercolor, white ink, watercolor pencils,  crumpled paper for the stem (Mea’s tip), gesso to recover some white areas and bleach to lighten areas that dried too dark.
 Cold pressed 140 lb watercolor paper.

 :thankyou: For your encouraging comments Mea, and  :thankyou:  for always sharing new tips with us. I used the crumpled paper technique you brought to our attention in the last Newsletter  to add texture to the fruit stem.  Next time I will be more adventurous and try a larger area.... I repeat: you are a treasure.


What software do you use to decrease the size of the picture?

Maria, I use the "FastStone Photo Resizer". It is a free program you can download from the net. I've used it for a number of years, very easy to use.
Cheers, Val
