Thanks, Maureen, for your very helpful comments. Blending those soft edges is a challenge for me, but I'm gonna do it!

Judy, try a thin glaze at a time and before it dries, scrub across and up and down - it does work!

Thanks for the tip, Maureen. I'll try that. And thanks Bhavani for your suggestion, too.

I hadn't realised threads could be rated. Just done so. And thanks for the positive comments Maureen!

I think most of us forget about the rating system .... I don't often see it used these days, so maybe I should be getting our Team to push it as we do get some really good, informative threads running.
Thanks for rating this ladies

Me too, wow the work here and what everyone has done is so good!
I'm still not quite done, been waffling. But I'm thoroughly enjoying everyone's work!

Re: P.A.L. (Paint-a-Long): Edges, lost and found, hard and soft....

I fell in love with one of the reference photos and just had to give it ago. Colour is not showing true as the background is actually a soft beige..

I have really enjoyed this opportunity to try Still Life andwhat I have learnt from this exercise....
Thanks Mum, Yer Bonza
