Rosebuds in January

Beautiful painting and composed with a lovely rhythm Shirley

Hi Shirley like this one it is well painted and as Dennis said has a lovely rhythm to it . Well done Shirley

Thanks Shirley for your kind comments your work is stunning colour wise drawn with the perfect amount of verve and always exciting and superb modulation. I had just been admiring it

That is very kind, Dennis. I always know there is room for improvement, but it is so much fun to do this water colour painting!

Hi Shirley. I love the sheer level of detail here, even down to the paint stained palette. Beautiful balance and form.

Full of interest and zingy yellows and greens Shirley:)

Somehow the separate objects all marry up to make a good composition - well painted.

Thank you Ian, Sarah and Michael for your comments. Yes, rather a lot of things in it.

Your paintings always have a sparkle Shirley, so well set up and interesting.

Your paintings are so full of interest Shirley, I particularly like the yellow primula, a touch of spring!

I always enjoy you still lifes. Fiona stole my words.

Such a good arrangement and gorgeous fresh colour Shirley!

Lovely painting Shirley! Good colour scheme and a composition that works.

Very nice too Shirley, love the textures on those primula leaves.

Thank you so much Gudrun, Fiona, Christine, Louise, Satu and Carole. That's very kind.

Shirley, your still lifes are absolutely delightful. You have an amazing collection of really challenging compositions, and you make it look so easy!
