Pinuccia, two things I see that you need to fix. The bird that is in flight the eye is in the wrong place. Also what you could of done on the bottom was continue the sky and the post all the way done, instead of having that white at the bottom. But I still think you did good. Watercolor is fun to do isn't it?   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Nina. I see what you mean about the eye.  I will fix that.  The other is just how I took the picture, I did take the sky to the end.  I am not a very good photographer. Thank you for your help much appreciated.

Pinuccia,

Wow, great job on the swallows.  Wasn't it great to have someone respond immediately to help you?  It's so great to be part of the PB family.

Kedde,

Lovely swallows.

Old tree trunk looks so real.

Nice vibrant colors.

The clouds just under the swallow's wing to the right look too circular.  Look too much like doodles.
