They work!


Beautifully painted as ever Diana - love the colours.

Utter magic Diana. You turn the mundane into unexpected delights. Brilliant.

Gorgeous Diana, who would have thought testing Christmas lights would make such a wonderful subject.

This is brillaint Diana, love how you treated the glow of the lights with the backdrop from light to dark. The detailing brush strokes and colours are gorgeous. An awesome and unique subject to do also 😊👍🏼

Good morning Margaret and thank you. I had a few days where I wondered if I’d paint again. I just didn’t do any and not because I didn’t want to or was busy. Strange. Oh that’s lovely Jim. Thank you very much. Thank you Anjana. I am Dawn to subject’s with strong contrasts. Not surprisingly I’m a Caravaggio fan. Thank you Tony. I enjoyed reading your thoughts and appreciate your feedback

Fantastic Diana. Such an unusual subject and angle. The diffusion of light is spectacular.

Thank you Carole. The fairy lights were always one of my favourite parts of Christmas. Before the days of having them up all year round.

Wow. This is excellent Diana. Detail where it really matters and the colours are great.

Superb as always Diana. You make the ordinary look amazing.

Top drawer as usual, Diana!

I would not even think about painting Christmas lights but after seeing your wonderful painting I want to do it as well. This is great.

Thank you Heather. I love paintings with areas left to the imagination. Afternoon Fiona. Lovely to hear from you and thanks. Hello Thalia. Always good to hear from you. Much appreciated. Thank you Barbara. Have a go. It’s a great subject.

Well... maybe I will try one day. :)

Subtle and spectacular at the same time. Wonderful.

Thank you Barbara and Elaine. I used this as this years cards. I love the coloured lights at Christmas. Subtle ones!

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imperial watercolour on Saunders Waterford heavy NOT paper. Been a bit distracted in last few weeks so got back into it today finishing this one.
