All brilliant pictures DL and the eagle is exceptional .

I cant say that I can fall over some of the well known artists paintings but full marks for yours because they really LOOK true to life.

I am no artist but I can appreciate the talents of others.

Have you ever had an exhibition of them? Just your paintings I mean?

Just come across this section D.L. Your paintings are soo lovely.
As you know I also paint in acrylic and watercolour.
Like me you like to paint in detail.
Sometimes I wish I could loosen up a bit.

Thanks everyone. You should see Topdog's paintings - he's fantastic!

I made Christmas Cards again this year and I put some for sale in the village shop. To my surprise and delight, I sold 9 of them. I have been asked to do some general cards for sale in the shop during the year, so I shall have to get going on that soon!

Right now I am struggling with a large painting in Acrylics. I don't get on with that so well, but I'm persevering, Mo! I think I got my paint a bit too thick and blobby in places and had to whip over it with a wet brush pretty quickly.

I just thought it would be good to work in a different media for a change!
