Thrilled!

My art club started up again this week after a two month holiday.

During that time, I had been painting and experimenting, using North light's Big Book of Painting Watercolour Flowers for inspiration, and some non flower photos too :)

Whilst the tutor did his tour of the class, he came to me and asked how much I had painted during the holiday?
I had printed out little postcard versions of the 16 paintings I had made.

He looked through each one and then told me it was a fine body of work - and he could really see where I'd improved over the summer.
here is a small selection:





I was thrilled that he commented on my improvement. Just as I am thrilled to read your comments when you make them.
So thanks to all of you who take the time to comment . I do appreciate it.
