Parrots and Bananas

Parrots and Bananas

Wow Shirley this is extremely well painted . Not over fussy but a crisp and professional feel to it , You must be very pleased with this one .

The bananas and the bowl are superb Shirley.

Gudrun took the words out of my mouth! It is fabulous and it is gorgeous.

I do love your joyful and colourful paintings - they definitely brighten up my day.

This is lovely Shirley, lively and colourful and I recognise those parrots!

Thank you Dennis, Thea, Fiona, Gudrun and Christine for your kind comments! Much appreciated! It was very good quality paper too, which adds so much to the different effects possible. (Compared to things in sketch books on plain old cartridge paper.)

A gorgeous little piece. I love all the marks and scratches. The colours make it too.

Shirley I like thos very much, striking colours. Did you use wax resist?

Excellent work, Shirley. I love the effect of the wax resist, it enhances the whole painterly feel of the scene.

Hang on Studio Wall

Wax resist and water colour this morning at my house with Barbara.
