Thanx Em! :)

Painted this a while ago and forgot to post it here :confused:
I didn't like it when I painted it (Ah....probably why I didn't post it!) but I sure learned alot from it.......EG. Marbles look much easier to paint than they really are! LOL!

BTW.....If they appear odd shaped it's 'cos of the angle I took the picture at....They are all perfectly round I assure you.....with the help of various circular objects around the home! LOL!

I'd like to try them again, so any tips would be appreciated! ;)

The only one that doesn't read marble or glass to me is the orange one in the back--don't know why and don't know how to help LOL

:clap: :clap: reflections of marble are perfect! I like the many variety of colours you have on the marbles. Orange marble doesn't look like glass perhaps because the right side looks opaque rather than transparent.... but that's minor since it's at the back.

I'd like to see some red or purple on the first blue marble but that's just me and I don't think you should mess with this... overall, it's very well rendered.

Good colors in all marbles. The orange marble seems out of proportion to the others, maybe its just the colors.

Those brilliant colors are spectacular. Makes the marbles just pop right off the paper

Every one reads well except that darned orange one... Does it seem oval or is it just me? Your colours are vibrant and clear and you've done a great job with this... I'm going to have to screw up my courage and paint in the round...

All of the others except the orange one has a dark outline on the left side, maybe thats what it needs.

Yup, the orange one is just a bit too oval and a bit too vibrant, maybe lighten it some, otherwise this pic is beautiful!!!

Nice marbles, Anita.

The orange marble in the back does not bother me.

What I noticed is that the shadow of the first marble in front looks so sharp that to me, it looks like an edge of the surface the marbles are on, rather than a shadow (it's so different from the other shadows, too). It adds a bit of drama to the painting in my opinion, since it looks like it's about to roll off the edge...

How wonderful to see another painting of my marbles!!

Hi Nitsa, these marbles are great. The opaqueness on the orange doesn't bother ...maybe because you so often find marbles with milky areas in them. One thing I was curious about is how large is this painting? great job! sandy

Great painting. I think this is the best of all the marble paintings I have seen. The colors are intense.

Lady Carol.....TY for the huge compliment! :)
