These are both in acrylics on canvas board, size around 20x30 in I think.

I really like the second one in the first panel. That showcases your lovely talent. The rest are less detailed than I am used to seeing from you, Ruth, but lovely anyway.

Thanks for the warm welcome to the new forum :wave:
- I should confess - these actually were the very first thing I ever painted when I started last year, I knew nothing about art so therefore thought ' come on it can't be that hard' - I never showed them on wc before :lol: -

I've just dabbed on a little more colour on the grasses this week as at the time of doing them originally they were entirely monochromatic and flat . I've largely kept them like they were tho' - nice to have a reference point where it all began!

Wish I could splash like that! These are your first paintings? Wow! Knowing nothing about art sure didn't hold you back, that intuition knew what it was after. These are beautiful. I love the red plant.
