Oh well done. I can feel the crackly, papery feel of the skin, and your colours are spot on. Good afternoon's work, it's beautifully done. Makes me want to reach for my paints but I can't use watercolour anywhere near as well as you do.

Your landscapes are good, but is the close-ups like this bulb of garlic and your door knobs and bolts that are really interesting.

Avril, bonjour et bon dimanche, je ne sais si tu penses comme moi, j'ai l'impression qu'en France en ce qui concerne l'aquarelle la tendance est plutôt au mouillé mouillé, non ? tu peux répondre en anglais, je sais en lire pas mal j'en profite pour souhaiter tous les membres de cer site tres sympa une tres bonne année 2011
