    I had so much fun painting this after watching Patrick’s video. 🙂 Cornish coastaI scenes are my favorite to paint! I am adjusting to and loving my new Silver Black Velvet  brushes and new Arches CP (Very affordable in the US from Amazon). My late grandmother’s old brushes have reached their sell-by date I think…  I’m not used to such pointed tips on brushes but that’s why I wanted new ones and I love the effects you can get. However, it created too much busyness in the flowers if that makes sense so I went back to the more rounded tip of my old brush to finish the flowers. The flowers and the foliage got a bit overworked and messy in places, but overall I am happy with this. 🙂

    So beautiful, Lora! Love the sky, the cottage is wonderful. Really love everything about it. Doesn’t looked overworked to me, but it’s an easy thing to do with foliage and flowers. I think you did a great job with this composition.

    I too love the Cornish coast although I’ve never been there.  Your colors are spectacular and I love your composition and loose style.  Its everything a watercolor should be.  Well done.

    Thanks, Paula, Domino, and David! David, if I ever get to England (my one-of-these-days-dream), Cornwall is first on my list! So beautiful! 😀

    You have been busy. Lovely painting.  I like it all but you really have got some great lost and found on those clouds. Lovely combination of soft and hard edges.

    Take time to look and make sure you see.

      Thanks so much, Brad! I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to successfully paint my clouds like Patrick did in the video, so I was really surprised how they turned out. 😀

    Fantastic painting Lora I genuinely prefer it to mine. The sky is superb, the whole painting has a shimmery summer feel to it. Lovely fresh colours, gorgeous piece of work.
