Just seen this Val, very good vibrant painting...I like the background flower, I'm glad you put it in. Well done.

I can send you some Carole, mine have only recently made an appearance. I won't be drawing any mind you, I couldn't compete with this fabulous work.

The background one give the composition a lovely gentle sense of depth Val. That’s my thought about it. Beautiful colouring as well.

a lovely vibrant and colourful painting of three beautiful flowers well done Val

Thank you Bob, I put the background flower in as an afterthought but wasn't sure about it, glad you like it. Ha Ha Alan, should have gone to specsavers springs to mind. I'm very flattered you think this was painted by Carole, but I'm Val :) Glad you like it though. Many thanks for your kind words John that is what I was trying to achieve with the background bloom. Thank you very much Tao I appreciate your lovely comments.

Great CP work. I like the background flower. It makes a great composition.

Lovely colours and composition Val.

I agree about the background flower Val, good move. It’s a gloriously colourful painting, just right for the grey light we have at the moment.

I love Fuschias and I love this Val , beautifully done ,I especially like the imaginative placing of the pot and flowers .

Val this looks so beautiful! I agree with everyone and think the background flower really adds to the composition. I'm so glad that you share my love of cp's as there are not many of us around😀

This is absolutely gorgeous, Val, with marvellous attention to detail. This looks like a great medium in the hands of one so adroit. Love it for the sheer pleasure it brought and brings. Bri

Thank you so much for your kind words Jola, Ibolya, Maureen, Fiona, Sylvia, Margaret and Brian. I do think CP's are considered to be the poor relation to other mediums but they do have a lot to offer and I'm often amazed at the quality of work produced by more experienced CP users.

Beautifull work Val, don't know why i missed this one 😀

beautiful very good pencil work

Great detailed work, Val.

Linda, Anne and Cesare thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments.

A super painting, Val. I love the shading on the edge of the petals. You've made a good of it. Lovely work.

Hang on Studio Wall

Coloured pencil. Helped by a CR free photo as I don't have any fuschias in my garden :) I think it looked better before I put the one in the background. I like CP work as I find it very relaxing compared to other mediums and no mess!! Thanks for looking.
