Louisa,


Did you have the timer running to see how long it would take me to respond?

This was one of my favorite oil classes and you have done it beautifully.

Nothing else to say - just BEAUTIFUL!

I can suggest adding more contrast to the stem to make it look rounder O0

Will do that Nolan, thank you for just another great class. I have done all the oil classes now except for the big five. Too difficult for me.  :hug:

Ms. Fig,

Beautiful calla lily.  Smooth background.  Leaves look good - nice veining.

I did this lesson, too, and liked how dramatic the flower looked.  Gave it to a friend recently and she was thrilled.  She has it hanging in her office now.

Keep up the good work!
