What an original idea, Diana, lovely!

Always well painted Diana .

I had to look at this several times (which is good) to see what this was so I like very much how you've painted this.

Great idea Diana. Love those washes. You are the diva of W/C. Have you given up on oils Diana.?

Brilliant Diana.

I absolutely love this Diana, such a brilliant idea and perfectly executed :-)

There is always something different with your paintings Diana, really unusual subject but really well painted,!!!

Absolutely stunning, Diana! You always have such original ideas for your pieces.

Thanks Mia. I got a bit lost with all the holes and cable design in the right garment. Thanks Dennis. Much appreciated! Thanks Heather. I’m getting the viewer guessing at the moment 😂. The foot in the water was another puzzle Thanks Carole. No, I haven’t given up but now have two work areas. One for oils and one for watercolour Thanks Elaine. Glad you like it. Thanks Andrea. I was shopping a long time ago with my daughter and was more interested in painting subjects than shopping. Thank you again Linda. There isn’t much going on here but the cast shadows were lovely

I like the combinations of colour.

Thank you Seok. As bit of dramatic light can make most things look interesting. Thanks Stephen. I wouldn’t choose purple or yellow and didn’t particularly like putting them on the paper but they compliment each other well.

A very different painting, so well painted.

Thank you very much for your interest Russell and Paul. Lovely to hear from you


You have the amazing ability to turn the ordinary into something of beauty. I love your watercolours, Diana.

Super idea, Diana!

Thank you Richard , Ellen and Thalia. I’ve more interest in painting it than shopping!!

Love the sunny feel to this Diana, but I especially like the violet background contrasted with those cream colours.

So different from your kitchen sink dramas Diana! You have a talent for combining detail and abstraction so well and use such original subject matter. Super.

Well done for spotting the artistic value of this subject Diana and then executing it superbly.

Brilliant subject, superbly painted

Thank you Jenny. I returned to this and worked a bit more. It’s been selected for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition which starts next week. Great honour! Thank you Tessa I love your comment because that’s exactly what I hoped to portray Thank you Brian. I returned to the same place recently and without that light looked very dull. Thank you Romila. I have since done some more work on it which I think improved it.

Half imperial watercolour.
