This is beautiful. No wonder you are winning awards and I think you are going to continue to do so. I like the way you painted onto the matting. I have seen that done with some pictures in our local gallery.

Can you use the uploader at the top of the thread page next time you post a pic so we can see it again while we comment. It is easy to do once you get the hang of it:)

Congratulations! The award is well-deserved. Your painting is beautifully executed and the colors are rich and vibrant.

Even the one that didn't win an award is wonderful.

We would love to see more of your paintings here in the Watercolor forum, even a WIP would be nice if you want to share your technique.
