"Chinese Lanterns"

Beautiful painting. Colours are just right as is that soft touch you achieve.

Would look great in my kitchen....brill.

Beautiful painting Marjorie, these Chinese lanterns are so attractive.

Beautiful composition combined with your eye for light colour and space A beauty Marjorie

This is so charming Marjorie, I really like the neutrals and hint of one colour.

Beautiful work Marjorie, the light and reflections on the vase are superb.


Thanks Gudrun and Peter ( think it's going in someone else's kitchen! ). Big thanks to Margaret and Dennis,Fiona, Russell and Ruth. I must paint something else with them, they're such a lovely colour. (Thinks.......)

Works so well - a muted palette and the superb colour of the physalis - a stunner.

Lovely soft lines Marjorie love the orange lanterns.

Those lanterns standing out against the soft light colours gives this a eyecatching lift and love the chair back in dark adding to the feel of structure,with subtle blocks of colour throughout. Very nice.

That physalis really zings against the neutral background Marjorie, beautiful.

Thanks Ivan! Michael, I thought you'd hibernated.Thankyou Carole - I bet you'd make a marvellous job of these! And Andre and Val, thanks for your lovely comments too.

Beautifully painted Marjorie.

And they are beautiful, Marjorie. Beautiful composition and a very delicate colour palette, love it!
