All three paint-a-long Peony paintings are very well done.  The wet-in-wet techniques all done well . Karen, however you have lost the light shading on the petal tips but that does not make it wrong - just a darker shade of Peony. All of you  :clap: :clap: :clap:

thanks Dennis and you nice people who have commented. I enjoyed the part of the lesson I got. Nina I usually use acrylics too and you can just re-gesso and go over stuff but I found today you can just wipe out watercolour mistakes with a damp cloth and then repaint when it's dry - very handy.

Well done Harald, Karen and Nina all the peonies look amazing. I can't wait to to try it myself. I would love to have painted along but it's a bit late in the evening for me. Must be getting old, I'm usually in bed by 10.30 pm  ;)

Many thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments. Nina your peonie is very beatiful, I can`t find the wrong with your waterdroop. Karen I do not agree, your choise of colors in the background and flower produces a lighter and more sommery look. I like this flowerpainting and here I have an other try.

Harald, you sure don't waste any time.  Good for you for practicing and I can see how you are improving because of it.

Your peonie is brilliant!   :congrats:

Had some trouble posting so my picture is in the gallery twice because I had to do it over and I dont know how to post and not be in the gallery twice. Hope I explained myself properly. Does anyone know?

It's good to see all the paintings being posted - tells me people are working :yippee:

Nice painting Gloria  :clap: :clap: :clap: If you let the main stem of the flower run out of the picture it will give it a much better look.
