Denise, see how the darkened bush has opened up the gap between itself and the distant cliff  - and added punch to the painting O0

I finally discovered what's wrong with my brain:
On the left side there's nothing right and on the right side there's nothing left.   :D

There are some days......  :2funny:

Herald and Denise you guys did a great job. Denise love your clouds.  O0 :clap: :clap: I was not able to get on the website yesterday. So I missed talking to you all. Hopefully will see you at the next one. Glad to have Dennis back.

Here's my work on the Hake Brush Beach. I had to leave before Dennis finished so I finished this today before the replay. (My colors aren't as bad as this scan makes them out to be.) Yep, I'll redo with the replay. thank you Dennis

Denise, you`ve got a nice picture with a gorgeous sky.
Thank you all for the nice comments, I also appreciate the suggestions. I will follow it up and correct as best I can.
It was fun to use the hakabrush again so I painted a new Picture. Hope it is an improvement.
The first is painted with W&N Artist watercolour on the second I used Cotman.

Carol, I love this.  :heeha: The tide pool is a bit washed out, but as you said it's probably the scan. Regardless, I think the overall effect is great.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

Harald, that's a fine re-do. And goes to show that student-grade paint can produce vibrant results. Good for you for your perseverance!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Dennis, thank you for suggesting darkening the bushes. Yes, I can really see how it changes the depth, what a difference!  :thankyou:  remembering that will really be helpful when I do my future paintings .....

 
Harald, I love your second painting also, thank you for sharing the comparison with the paints. The rock re-do looks great and I'm glad your man now has a head in the second painting ;)

 
Carol, very nice painting! :clap: :clap: :clap: I really like the dreamy look it has...
 
Thank you everyone! for your nice comments  :smitten:  looking forward to seeing your  :painting:  also  :)

I can't add anything to what's already been said.  I'll just say, "Ditto! Well done, Carol and Harald."   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
