 :smitten: Thank you Dennis and the PB Gang  :smitten:.

I have to mention again how grateful I am for your classes Dennis. I know I would not be painting any more if it weren't for you, Nolan and everyone on PB. The few local classes that I took were good but not enjoyable for me. So, thank you for passing on your knowledge in the way that you do.

Will be away most of next week but looking forward to our future flower classes! Happy painting everyone.....

Thank you so much Liz  :smitten:
I usually use my middle name, Sachiko, to sign my paintings. It means "child of happiness" and I'm always happy when I paint  :).

I'm eager to get going on this one, as soon as everything calms down after the holidays. The only watercolour pencils I have are the Derwent Inktense ones. Would those work?

They should work brilliantly. I have a friend in Wales who does beautiful paintings with the Inktense pencils. Love the colours and intensity. I would love to have some of those!  :pray:

Val, I fear they may be a little TOO brilliant! So I have just ordered some regular Derwent watercolor pencils.
