What a great job you have done Paul, I've followed this on the forum. Lovely watercolour.

Super painting

Beautiful Paul, perfect as it is.

A real eye-catcher, Paul.

Nice work, Dixie...interesting to watch your progress in the forum.

Many thank Denise, Heather, Carole, Mia and Lew for you very kind comments. I’m finding I’m a bit unsure about the dark areas and still wonder if the should be darker. I did want it to be different but keep some of the original shape and look. Had a couple of comments from friends fe painting wasps in but as I said to them it’s what happens in the autumn .

Lovely variety of leaves and flowers Paul.

Interesting tones & colours.

Lovely colours and tones in this Paul. For me you Don't need to change anything.

These a a bit good Paul, very nicely drawn and painted!

A lovely painting Dixie. I don’t think you need any darker in the centre, works well as it is.

Many thanks Carole, Stephen,David, Alan and Tessa for your kind and encouraging comments. I do enjoy drawing out and painting this type of scene I think it’s the trying to make it look natural that I enjoy.

Like this very much Paul lovely composition.

Lovely colours, Paul.

Hang on Studio Wall

24x32cm 200gsm watercolour paper. Watercolour of a painting I did in 2005, came @croos the original and though I would do something similar but different. Took it to the next stage of the blackberry becoming overripe and then decided to add some wasps. I’m not sure if I should have gone darker in the right centre but decided to leave it for now.
