I love your waterlilies, Karen.  The reflections are beautiful and I love the look of the calm water.

You always do such nice work and this is no exception.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Dennis -

I notice I'm missing a significant amount of water color classes...I've done all of them and my list showing is 16 but that include the free ones and the painting club one.  If you need me to detail them, I'd be happy to do so but I don't know if you just have to make a tech adjustment on your end.  Thank you.

Karen:...A beautiful painting. Congrats....It's so lovely.

Dennis:
when you leave white on the paper for the reflections on the water, do you just wash it 'lightly' with some U M Blue?

When you leave white paper on the water lilies for water reflection, do you just put a light blue wash over them?
Thanks.
