About to pop

Wow!!! Beautiful Marjorie, the colour is stunning - I've got a long list of flowers to do now!

That one really does pop! Love the...dare i call it mushy ? foreground super stuff!

This is lovely Marjorie. I love the colours and the poppy getting ready to pop! Lots of life in your painting.

Theres something epic and colossal about this as though the dimensions are over 10 feet by 4. Strangely it reminds me of those much larger than life madonnas of giotto. This really is a fine achievement.

These are beauties.. and great backgrounds too x

Well I did enjoy using my pastels again! Thanks for the comment Margaret, I don't have exactly the shade I'd like but, hey, artistic licence eh? Thalia, I love that " mushy" description😊, Thankyou Stella and Michael and Rachel - these are sort of challenges from the forum.

Cor....what a stunning pastel, can tell you’ve enjoyed using them again.


Beautiful painting, Marjorie, and so dramatic - great use of pastel techniques...

Cor.. that made me laugh Fiona - thanks. Anne and Jan - thankyou!

I love the abstract background and the imaginative freedom of the paintin Marjorie.

That’s lovey Marjorie

Gorgeous colours Marjorie.

Thankyou Dermot and Sandra.

Another good one, Marjorie.

Now that says it all Marjorie, a lovely painting the pastels have worked so well 😀

That poppy certainly pops off the screen Marjorie, stunning.

Thanks again everyone.

Super work Marjorie
