Thank you Patricia.

I was just looking at all the other butterflies painting from 2013 and 2014... you, Val, and the gang.  All were beautiful, but you have all come such a long way.  This is very encouraging for me.
Cheers, Annie

 :thankyou:  Annie, I could not even remember doing that lesson. However, it is so interesting to look back on past lessons and to see the improvement in ones work. 


Anyway, I loved your rendition for it is clear and so neatly painted.

Thank you Mea and Val.  I did snoop at yours... way back.

Amazing almost 3 years since last posting.  I suspect many PB members don't post their work.. what a shame!  They don't know what they miss.
Cheers, Annie

Ilinca, well done  :clap: :clap: :clap: Love the butterflies. If you add more contrast to the orange butterfly and the flower you will see a huge difference  O0

Well done, too, Annie  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Annie: Your butterflies look great.  Nice colors.  I would have added some highlights on the flower. :clap: :clap:

Thank you Kathy.  I agree more highlight would make it better.

I looked at the painting it may be difficult to lift.  Planning mistake, I over did the pink and lost the highlights.  Now I will remember, thank you.
Cheers, Annie
