I picked one more lovely image up.
To make the flosted glass's texture,I used the salt.But these were too much water on the paper,the salt floated out....!

Thanks Deano,friesin,Maureen,Connie,Wendy & Bunny!
Actually it's my first experiance to do this subject-Cotswolds.
So I wonderd if I could express this lovely village's atmosphere but as a result I'm almost satisfied with it.:wave:

You painted Cotswolds captured the spirit. Charming!
And your orchid is something I wish to show in my house.

Charming Cotswolds just as they are in real life.
Your floral orchid is lovely, with or without the salt...I don't think it needed it.

Love the rich colors you have achieved on both works! Nicely done!

Toshi both are so lovely and painterly. I love the color palette in the housing and the blue in the bg of the orchid adds to the whiteness of the petals make them pop!
