Spear thistles, Middlehaven


Really excellent painting Emma, the warm and cool colours work really well together and just a lovely composition.

This is wonderful. I like the viewpoint and the sense of wind and movement, good one

That's just super, Emma. Wonderful sense of movement and so well painted.

This is really good Emma, great sense of movement and well observed.

I agree with all the comments. Really nicely done.

Beautifully painted Emma. Love the feeling of wind here.

A real sense of movement in this image.

Oh, great stuff - wonderful movement in the thistles, grasses and sky: you should have no trouble selling this, but if I'd have painted it, I'd want to keep it.

PS - I think you can stop calling yourself an amateur now! This is top quality watercolouring.

This really caught my eye, Emma. Beautiful painting, textures and colours.

Really great painting.

Beautifully painted Emma.

Thank you all very much for the lovely comments 😊

Tremendous work Emma, free flowing and great form to those thistle heads

A superbly atmospheric painting.

Thank you Frank and William.

Fabulous Emma! Those thistles are certainly dancing in the wind.

Thanks Fiona 😊

I love the movement. Lovely tones too.

A very dynamic watercolor painting!

Thank you Ruth and Dominique!

Thank you Maureen.

Some plants get better with age - these thistles looked beautiful with their white seeds and withering foliage. Mixed media, 16x12"
