A work of art Rita..very pretty.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Missed this!  Ohhhhh, so pretty, Rita.   :smitten:

Tony, Valweb, Alice, sorry for my very late reply things are not going as i would wish for, and Pat, Lillian, Denise and Zac thank you so much for all your wonderful comments, it is much appreciated.
Denise, no watercolour pencils but my Karisma coloured pencils and Bruynzeel Design coloured pencils, the last one is a Dutch brand, harder as the Karisma's and great for details. I still have all 120 colours from the Karisma's, but some are just little stumps. I bought some extenders so i can still use my little pencils a little longer. I have to look for some other coloured pencils, they don't make the Karisma pencils anymore.

You might want to look at Derwent Coloursoft, if you liked the Karismas.
or Caran d'Ache Luminance  but at twice the price.

Thanks Ray, there are so many brands and qualities in coloured pencils, i think i buy from both a few colours and just try then before i buy too many from one brand and find out that they don't work for me. Some brands i have heard of, aren't for sale here or very hard to find, or indeed expensive. I only need new soft coloured pencils, the harder Bruynzeel i still have more than enough. Every time i was in the shop i bought a few coloured pencils after i overheard that they would stop making the Karismas in 2005. But after 7 years i am facing the fact that my favorite colours are just on their last inch. And from all those last little stumps i will make a bracelet, an idea that i saw some years ago.
