Making Chilli


Super work Diana!

Thank you Slsn. The bottle on the left leaves a lot to be desired 😂

Sorry. Thank you Alan

Lovely work Diana! I like the hint of red in the jar against the green bottle

Fabulous painting

Those lids are brilliant Diana. Great light here. I do so love chilli.

Well Diana - the bottle on the left may have a slight crick in the neck but who cares! Great example of how to paint glass and reflections ...... wish I could! Well done.

Such bright and colourful contrasts. Great.

Thank you Rachel. I’m really surprised how fast you can complete an oil painting. Thank you Romila. What to try next? Thank you Carole. The jars were all so colourful in the sunlight. Thank you Michael. Looking at it, a shadow to the right of the neck should fix it. I would probably be more concerned about accuracy with watercolour. Thank you Stephen. The colours were wonderful

Another little beauty!

lovely work!

Thank you very much Heather and Tony. I’m starting to realise just how tricky watercolour is😂

Great shine on those bottles.

Thank you Dawn. It’s a luxury to be able to put the highlights on last

You are skillful with oils too, Diana.

Love the palette and the rendition of textures. Beautifully painted, as always, Diana.

This is great, Diana!

Thank you Cesare. Maybe beginners luck. Its very much messier! I do like the smell though. Thank you Seok. It’s a luxury to be able to add highlights at any point in the painting. Thank you Mia. I think this is my favourite of the ones attempted recently.

I like the glasswork here with its bright reflections.

Love this with so much light in it, Diana.

Like Diana.

Thank you Jennifer. David snd Shaun. I was happy with the two jars on the right.

I love these bright colours. Audacious, Diana!

Thank you Jacques. I am very new to oils and having fun trying techniques
