    You paint fruits so well Marsha, Lovely watercolour.

  • Thank you so much. I almost ditched it half way through because it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to, but I kept at it & was able to pull it off.

    The colors are excellent, and the execution is outstanding!
    I love it!

  • So glad you like it. My husband said that all those spatters I used for texture make them look like they’re beginning to rot! ha! Thanks for your kind support, Elisabeta.

    gorgeous transparencies, Marcia!!! the light and colors are fabulous, also!

  • What a nice comment, Sally. For all the layers I put on there, I’m surprised they stayed as transparent as they did.

    Fantastic Marsha! Lovely, warm reds and great deep shadows give shape and life to these juicy looking apples. Such a bright, arresting painting.

  • And to think I almost trashed it halfway through!!! If I had done that, I would’ve missed your wonderful comment that’s making me blush right now. Thank you so much for these wonderful words.

    Wishing you & Fran the very best in the coming New Year.
