In the church hall if wet


This is quite magnificent. So abstract but so real. Love it!!

I love it, Diana. It certainly worked. Beautiful colours and the 'water' is perfectly painted.

I agree with Graham and Mia, I would be thrilled to have painted this!

This is excellent ... reality and abstract in one image!

This has worked really well, Diana. I especially like the colours.

That is so good, really makes you are looking out of that window 🌧️☔☔

I think it has definitely worked Diana, and a good title!

Class work Diana. Whole new avenue.Lovely.

That's certainly wet Diana, super painting.

Really lovely work, Diana and such a clever concept.

Beautifully painted Diana.

I am in awe of your technique - this is lovely.

What a wonderful comment to receive Graham . Thank you. Thank you Mia. I love the way the objects are completely distorted Thank you Katy. It might be one that grows on me. Thank you David. I like the abstract of it too. Thank you Jenny. It’s red brick on the left then garden colours with a shed roof and bins in the front right. Thank you Linda. It is a similar view at the moment! Thank you Petra. It’s been incredibly difficult to complete. Thank you Tessa. I thought the title added a bit of humour Thank you Jim This one came so close to being binned several times. Thank you Maggie and Anne. I have watched the rain on the windows today while painting Thank you Margaret. I really thought this wax too complicated so had to simplify it a lot ! Thank you Bobbie. I was stretched to the limit of my capabilities here. Some areas worked better than others.

Absolutely fabulous

This is excellent Diana and I loved the title.

One word Diana...genius! How are the eyes?

Thank you Romila. I’m still unsure about this one so have started something else for now. Thank you Diane I think I like the title better than the painting 😂 Thank you very much Fiona. I d Lost the freshness with too much spraying which is a lesson learned for next time. My eyes will be getting a few days rest as it’s half term and my time will be used elsewhere😄

Definitely works for me! Love it!

Absolutely brilliant Diana - such an original subject too. Like the title as well!

Thank you Linda and Thalia. I’m not sure about this one but it looks wet in places. Thank you Louise and Vicky. I never break driving rules but am ashamed to say that I took a quick photograph while waiting at the lights It was a while ago and I wouldn’t do it again

Beautifully painted !

Thank you Lea. That was a challenge!.

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imperial watercolour on Saunders Waterford CP , heavy paper. I’ve had to force myself to complete this and am still unsure if it’s worked. I’m happy with bits of it
