This was even more fun. I`m kind of satisfied with the picture but I`ll try once more to get it better. Have a litle blue in the red in the flowers?

Wow! I get home and there is already a completed painting waiting for me to take a look at  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Very well done for a paint-a-long. That bit of blue in the shadow areas is still ok. Depending on the time of day and the condition of the sky (clouds) the colour of the shadows will also change to suit.

I'm impressed. :flowers:

Here is my attempt. I enjoyed the lesson. The banter and laughter made it seem more relaxed and like a face to face class. The classes keep getting better and better. I look forward to Sunday afternoons (North Carolina time). :smitten:
