I’m on the bins today.

Brilliant few hours work Diana!

Lovely shadows and reflections!!

Making an art form from rubbish Diana....Ace. You're,a star...(-:

Thank you Fiona. Those blinds in my kitchen have enhanced so many scenes! Thank you Heather. I was planning to do oils again but need to dig very still due to a spine problem at the moment. Not so much movement using watercolour Hank you Linda and Jim. I feel more at home with rubbish than beautiful bumble bees😂

Stands out with such interesting shadows.

This is just stunning, Diana. Beautifully painted metal! Love the sunlight on the bins!

Superb detail Diana. You observe so well and deliver some wonderful work.

Beautiful painting!

Wow Diana love the light and shadows here, great skill.

Thank you Stephen. The circular ones were amazing. Thank you Mia. It was a light show to enjoy. Thank you Tessa. I have some oil panels being delivered today so I’m spoiled for medium choice. Thank you Lea.I appreciated your interest. Thank you Carole. I like the subject enough to repaint it in a different composition

Super work Diana!

Excellent shadows & reflections.

Half imperial watercolour. Someone told me that painting in oils would improve my watercolour. I certainly approached this in a much more relaxed way and completed it in a few hours. I loved the cast shadows of those blinds. Bins are beautiful!
