Many thanks for an iformative lesson, I`ll do my very best on these strawberries.
Regarding HUE assosiated with colour names it means that the orginal pigment are replaced with synthetic matrials. I the cadmiums the metal cadmium is replaced and in cobolt and serulan the cobolt is rplaced with syntetic pigments. This might be to reduce the toxins, more often it is to reduce the costs.
Cadmium is used in more expensive qualities as:
Smicker Finest artist 60ml Cadmium Red 10,85
Daler & Rowney Cryla 75ml Cadmium Red 10,50
W&N Artists 60ml Cadmium Red 9,65
While in cheaper qualities you find more HUE colours as:
Daler & Rowney System 3 75ml Cadmium Red HUE 4,95
W&N Galleria Cadmium Red HUE 4,95
All prices in British Pounds in SAA list
In a list of W&N Artists I found only one HUE colour it was Serulan Blue HUE to 7,35. This colour can also be supplied with authentic pigment at a price of 14,45.
I found as mentioned just one HUE colour in W&N best quality paint and here as a supplement to the real one, in the cheaper Galleria from the same factory, there are more than 20% HUE colours.

From moon craters on the left to more of the 'dancing' effect on the right.  I don't know how to correct the oddness of it all-will wait for that in upcoming classes!  ;D
Great class Nolan-I definitely learned a lot.  O0

 :thankyou:  Zayn.
It took me several classes before I tried with watercolor.  I feel too overwhelmed with acrylics right now to try again.

Great job Verpin. :clap: :clap: :clap: You can add a bit more solid reflections on the left and right hand sides O0

Natalie, the only thing I would correct is to push the shadow cast by the front strawberry right up against it. The strawberries themselves look just like mine :congrats:
