Merry xmas Diana,,,Nice baubles..

Certainly best dressed for the occasion Diana, lovely sparkly highlights. I like how the lights stand out in the bottom darkness.

You have a gift of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary Diana. I like how the tree fades out at the bottom with only the lights standing out.

Lovely Diana. Like the way the baubles sparkle.

Ha thanks Peter. Thank you Carole. I'm pleased that the lights sparkle a bit. Thank you Fiona ,that's a lovely compliment Thanks Adele. I'm glad the light appears to catch the glass Diana

I have no words for this beauty, Diana, it is a painting that takes your breath away. I could stare at that all night long. Your talent is unbounded.

Cesare, what s compliment. I'm very flattered that you like it. I did it to get back into studio painting after my holiday. Diana

Agree with Fiona's comment, Diana, an ordinary scene made special. A magical painting.

Diana how do you find the QOR paints, they look good on this painting?

Just the colours...

Carole, the QOR paints are quite vibrant. I don't think the colour is reduced as much as other brands when they dry. Apart from that I didn't notice any difference in the actual working of them. Thank you Sylvia , I chose these colours because they are advertised as being brilliant . They must be as its been commented on that they are lovely and bright. Diana

Thank you Jenny. I have noticed that many of my paintings seem to fade into blackness near the bottom. I think I lose interest or don't know what to put there! Diana

I think this watercolour would deserve to be selected on the top line, Diana.

Thanks Diana for the info.

Excellent piece, beautifully painted, full of artistic expression, liveliness and spontaneity.

Seok and Cesare, your comments are very much appreciated. Diana
