Purple Haze

Amethyst 2

This is dazzling Jennifer. Love the sparkle of the stones and the beautiful purples.

Fabulous watercolour - this is SO realistic

Well this is rather impressive Jennifer! You’ve really achieved a realistic portrayal and the few highlights are just so good...

Wonderful work Jennifer! Such nuances of colour. Somewhere in the house I have one of these.

That is quite amazing Jennifer, makes me want to stop painting :)). Truly the way you have got those different facets on the specimen is so skillful and the variations in tones, nice one.

Nice painting of the amethyst crystals - I remember buying some of these from children at the side of the road on the way to Kariba Dam in Zambia.

A real cracker, those colours have so much umph!

That's a very clever bit of painting, highly skilled use of watercolour.

Amazing watercolour!

Beautifully done.

That’s gorgeous.

This is interesting Jennifer, beautifully done.

The reflected light and shades of dark give this a lovely 3D effect.

Great subject, beautifully painted, Jennifer

Felt that I could touch the stone. Great painting.

Thank you all so much for your terrific comments. They have made me forget how cross-eyed the painting of this watercolour made me!

My sort of watercolour - strong, clear and detailed. I like your clever use of colour to capture light and shade. Very good.

Always excellent Jennifer great skills

Thank you for your "brilliant" comments Shelagh and Dennis. I'm glad you like this bold painting of mine. It certainly made me see double until the real darks went in!

Just love the sparkle in this Jennifer, wonderful subject and brilliant execution in watercolour

Thank you for your comment, Anjana. Very kind of you.

Hang on Studio Wall
