Fantastic!

Carissima, è come se una furia d'acqua volesse distruggere repentinamente la viva rossa bellezza del papavero. Un segno forse di questo tempo matto che perdura o della fragilità della vita... Ciao e buon 1° Maggio.

And they do fade fast and aren't very lovely to look at. You turned something sad into something beautiful and uplifting. Very lovely watercolor!

Hi Jane am not sure what to do about that, I do have 4 other followers (yay!!!)so there must be some way of doing it, just checked in with some of your paintings, see you did the 100 washes. You have some stunning work on here Jane and am touched that you would want to follow my blog, maybe Laura can help? Will ask her....

JANE MINTER ha detto...

Judith Farnworth Art ha detto...

Thanks Jane I did it!!!! Have a followers section now... am a bit of a numpty where these things are concerned!!!

Have just added a new blog, I saw yours about transparent and staining colours and it reminded me of the one I did. I run an online group so was trying to encourage them to do the exercise for their own palettes and so wanted to lead by example and did mine, surprising what you learn by doing it.

JANE MINTER ha detto...
