Re: DECEMBER 2019 Plant Parade

Wow, such lovely entries already!

Shane - great crop!
Love those reds and greens - so vibrant!

Maria - thank you for joining us, especially with such a delightful and delicate golden leaf - gorgeous!

Christel - lovely colours for the coleus - delicately handled OPs too.

Bonnie - lovely, spiky poinsettia.

Skylar - beautiful combo here, lovely light and subtle shade.

Lil - vibrant leaves against that dramatic dark b/g.

Scary - thank you for joining us this month - glad you liked the idea!
Lovely lyrical lines in the first, really good 'crinkles' in the second for those textured type leaves and the third is very pretty.
Did you use coloured pencils? We usually say what medium, size and if it's paper/canvas etc.

Jane, thank you for posting again - I was going to return your original entry but now I don't need to!
These are both beautifully observed and painted - the first so strong and the second so pretty and delicate - thank you for joining us!

*******************************************

Here's mine - some of us who do the WDEs (link in my signature) were blessed to get 'twofers' this month as I'd set a poinsettia in the WDE challenge last weekend

Digital on tablet - 'oils' in ArtRage app - can't get high resolution in the apps for tablets but at around 5" size, doesn't make a huge difference!

Re: DECEMBER 2019 Plant Parade

Kay, I love the red, top one.... just encapsulates the season!
The detail (or impression of such) in the glower part of your second one is super!

Imelda, what a lovely arrangement, it would make a lovely ceramic design!

Those poinsettias certainly are popular!
