Mary Lou,

Great painting.  Like the stairs and stones.

Thanks Patricia, those rocks took me a while before I got them to look like rocks.   Dennis does it with such ease!  I get mesmerized watching him!

Harald, beautiful painting. Love how the stairs gradually turn into rocks and soften as you come forward into the painting.
 
Really nice job Mary Lou! The rocks and stairs look great and I like the shadow coming off the plant.

Well,

Finally got 'round to another of my Watercolours lessons. Bit of a break on the nature series while waiting for a background for the next one to dry.

So here is my go at using Acrylics as watercolours.

Wow, Batman! I love the vivid color, as well as the abstract quality you bring to this. You have made it, as they say, a whole 'nother thing!  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

Batman,

I like this one with the lone bird off to the side.

Your colors are so vivid, as always.

Dennis had a bird flying, but mine was too lazy to fly so it just decided to perch on that stump.  :2funny:

Delightful....I love how you take your artists licence, and yet cover the subject beautifully.  Great picture and a super job.
