Tessa’s photo of waves


Your landscape sketches are very confident and free Shirley, this one has buckets of energy!

Thanks, Fiona. I'm using my coloured pencils, water, rubbing with torchon, and white acrylic.

Like this Shirley, very interesting.

Very effective Shirley.

Confident brush strokes Shirley, super stuff.

Love this palette and theses so much movement in the water

Thank you Dennis and Maureen, that's very kind.

Thank you Dennis 😍
