Great subject, Val! Haven't done yet the classes with the flowers but I would give it a try. By the way, is for the watercolourists too I hope. What are the basic rules and who will be the judge?

I'm almost ready to paint.  :yippee:

Sorry guys, I don't remember the name of this flower. I'm very bad for that.  ::)  The photo was taken in in Grenada. These flowers grow on bushes all over the place. There's no shortage of flowers in any of the islands.  :)

Val,  :thankyou:  for keeping the forum interesting and challenging.

That's a beautiful photo, very inspiring and I'd love to paint it.  Sorry, no time right now.    :'(

You have a lot on the go at the moment Lillian.  :run: 

You can just file this one away and perhaps paint it another time in a quiet moment...  :whistle:    ;D
