This is lovely Louise, especially the colours. (Would be interested to know how you rework your watercolours, do you perhaps add gouache or collage, or just more watercolour?)

Thanks Jenny. I was never too happy with this one and and as it was just languishing in my painting drawer, I thought I'd try and improve it. The bottom right corner was originally an orange stripe and an odd flower shape so I added more colour and texture there. The cottages seemed to be floating so I darkened them. There's no collage, just more colour and sometimes a touch of white gouache. It looks better now so it was worth doing! Sometimes a drastic change works and if it doesn't, I just move on. My thought are that if I don't try, then I'll never know :)

Whatever you did to it it's worked, it looks a really strong painting, love the colours, 😀

Beautiful colours, and just love the bright yellow moon. Certainly well worth re-working.

Ooh I like this Louise. The colours are super, a smashing painting.

Many thanks Linda, Sandra and Margaret :)

Love your complex and multi-layered images.

Good result, Louise.

This is terrific - lots to look at, great design, gorgeous colours.

Many thanks Cesare and Margaret :)

Love this one, Louise, and I couldn't agree more about reworking languishing[!] paintings, and adding more paint. Leads usually to a much stronger image as can be seen in this!

Thanks for the info. Louise. It's interesting how when you revisit a painting it's sometimes easy to see where a few changes will rescue it - have you tried the Neocolour II water soluble wax pastels - they're great for touching up watercolour, and if you don't like the effect, you can just wash them off!

It's very creative for sure, it's also quite brilliant. Nicely reworked Louise and well worthy of the HP gallery.

So pleased you brought these back, I love 'em Louise complete with moon.

Thanks Jenny. I like the sound of those! Thank you Alan and Carole :)

Thank you Cesare and Maureen :)

Tremendous picture, Louise. Marvelously creative, I admire people who can 'see' things differently.

Brilliant Louise. I saw it first on Facebook tonight.

Many thanks Lewis and Michael!
