Another winner.

uh sorry Wayne, this one doesn't do it for me..I think the red poppies should be completely reversed to hang dwon to the left instead..and too much 'same' green foliage..BUT I do love that mug, for sure.. :clap:

Beautiful painting! I envy those being able to paint loose. I often start with those intentions, and usually end up so detailed in the end.

thanks Carol .. Computer Technology

thank you Lulu .. people ask so I may as well just put them in if it helps someone understand where I'm coming from.

Thanks GNU .. maybe next one :D

Thanks Val ..

Shelly, thank you .. a good exercise is to take old pictures and see how many strokes it takes you to capture the picture. Just paint right over it. Anything, paper, old pieces you find at garage sales, anything .. it's only paint and you have to play hard to break old habits. It will get you loose and it will build speed.

What a great idea, I will have to give that a try!

thank you decor

Shelly, you paint so well using the realistic vein that it should not take you long to figure out how to paint simply. Most beginners think it's easy based on looks. Seeing as you are no beginner, so you should find it very interesting and not such a great challange.
