Self Isolating Essentials


Always yours and always superb. A masterclass in painting glass

Wonderful idea Diana and so well executed. I love the reflections in the glass, superb!

Brilliant in every respect Diana. Lovely work.

Terrific wine glass and good sentiment !

The glass of course is fantastic, but I love the light from the lamp on the background too.

Superb glass as is the rest of the painting. Presume the glass is the most essential due to its prominence in the foreground!

Love your palette, clever composition ad the excellent light effects, especially those on the glass Diana. Beautiful work.

Brilliant work Diana, as always.

I see you enjoyed your red wine whereas I have really enjoyed your representation of the results. You are so skilful. Cheers Diana.

Morning Heather and thank you for taking the time to look at my painting. Hello Tessa. It wasn’t my glass but I loved the bit of red colour left in it. Good morning Jim. Thank you and lovely to hear from you. Thank you Richard. This is one I will remember painting. Thanks a Dawn. Yes, those warm lights were lovely. Good morning Christine. Yes, it was my intention to bring the glass forward with a softer background. Thank you Carole . I’m still a bit hesitant with colour strength and am always surprised how I need to strengthen not just the darks. Hello Russell . Always good to hear from you. Thanks. Thank you Brian. I have to admit that it was my husbands wine. I’m not particularly keen on red but the colour is glorious.

Beautifully done, Diana, I especially like all the warm colours in this.

Amazing work as ever, Diana, beautiful composition.

Simply always, Diana!

Always like your work Diana

Great painting - love your glass.

The glass does indeed shine ... brilliant!

This is brilliant ... indeed the glass does shine ... beautiful colours and so much detail to bring the composition alive.

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imperial watercolour. I wanted the glass to shine and look crisp so painted a looser , wet in wet background
