Hi Carole this is so beautiful what patience you must have

OH wow. Beautiful.

Lovely painting. I admire your detail work and the patience that goes with it. I use to paint in this manner, but immediate gratification got the best of me. Thanks for your kind comment.

Thanks Patsy, Diana & Chito, I much appreciate your encouraging comments.

What a lovely painting.........so delicate.

Lost among trumpets of ambrosia, their tender fragrance folding around my senses, as emerald and cream kisses brushed past my cheeks. Extraordinary !

My favourite lily. I have to congratulate you Carole on your wonderful talent. Gorgeous I love the shadows bringing the lilies forward. Excellent work. PS thank you for your kind comment on my portrait of Dad - you are right about a friendly person - he was. Everybody liked him. He always had time for people and would stop and talk to anybody, Thanks once again. I am quite pleased with the portrait I keep looking at it and speaking to it.

There is movement in this lovely painting, and I love the shadow effect. Have you had formal tuition, and how long have you been doing these?

Hi Lynne, thank you for your kind comment. No haven't had any tuition but would have liked to in years passed! I went on a different career course! I have always drawn and dabbled in watercolour on and off through the years. Now it is a wonderful hobby in my old age! Thanks again~~~~Carole.

This caught my eye Carole. I love the movement in this and how you make the flowers stand out by using so few colours :)

Thanks so much Sarah, very kind of you.

Your paintings have caught my eye! Wonderful work!

Thank you so much for your kind words Gabriele.
