Pot of basil

Just lovely Shirley.

Lots of character in this painting, Shirley... very bright and cheerful.

Well done Shirley, a lovely work

nice painting Shirley

Thank you very much, Henry, Jan, David and Dennis😊

I love the simplicity of your still lives Shirley and might have already said it before. The objects are as they are and no nonsense. You done care about perspective and that gives your work an extra charm.

Thank you, Satu and Carole. I love your work. I think the perspective certainly got a bit stretched on the mug!

Lovely piece, Shirley. Love the lively washes and brushwork.

A lovely watercolour Shirley.

I love this. It has such warmth and it's lovely s always. I don't mind the mug. The basil is the star.

Thank you very much! It was a very limited palette of indigo, burnt sienna and cadmium yellow, which turned out quite interesting.

Hang on Studio Wall

Water colour this afternoon, on some nice new paper.
