:cheer: Hi Deco - it looks gorgeous as usual :) It amazes me how you get the texture on the petals - like the little lines that go through it :) How do you do that? and if u don't mind me asking how did you get the little 'dots'? The colours too are beautiful in fact in one word I would say EXCELLENT :) :) I'm sure your friend will be delighted with it - who wouldn't? :rolleyes: <_<

Thanks Denise :) I'm glad you like it finished :)
Hope my friend will also like it when she receives it :)
I'm going to send it Monday so I hope it will arrive on time for the wedding :))

Now I varnished it but chose a matt varnish because sometimes
the glossy one gives lots of gleams and it just spoils the texture
and because the texture of this one is a nice addition to the whole painting
I thought the matt varnish would be the better one :)

As for the texture on the petals and dots -just different techniques
nothing so special :) - they are just done with the small set of paints
I bought last year from Alicante :))
I firstly thought to not put the dots but when I looked on the painting
it just needed something to look finished so decided dots gonna do the job :)

:) Hi Deco - Did you post your artwork today? She will love it :) :)

You know I never think of matt I do all mine in gloss - but what you have said is right and I've never thought of this before - so this is a good tip for us artists :)

I like the dots on it and as you say it finishes it off nicely :) I wondered if you had used those 'artstiks' or whatever you call them not a brush - you know the ones in like small bottles with a pointed end ? But they were done with a paintbrush then?

Let us know what your friend thinks - mind you we all know what the answer will be :) :)

Yes I posted the painting today :) will let you know'what she thinks
when she receives it :) it took me an hour to wrap it up :) but it was sent along
with a nice Wedding postcard :)) Hope they will like the present :)

Well... you must probably try once to varnish with matt :) as many of your
art works are with different texures - you'll see the difference,
I just use Winsor Newton matt varnish as I find their products are the best :))

Dots ... :)) obviously you're very curious about them :)
no I haven't used "artstiks" :) ot any other "tools" :) nor yet outliner paints in a tube :))
OK - they are just done directly with a tube of acrylic paint, hope this helps :)

BTW - Did you see the post with "Poppies"?

:) I've got an inquisitive mind haven't I? :) :) Thank you for telling me how you did it - I just like to know these things :) :) Yes just seen your post on the poppies and replied :) I think I might try the Matt - in fact I've got a couple of bottles cos Ken bought me some back from Dublin once when I'd said to him Gloss - silly boy isn't he? Well I suppose I thought so at the time - but they will come in handy after all now won't they? :) :) :)

Hi all

Just to let you know that the newly-married couple
received the painting and I got feedback that they really
like it :) In fact they are going to take it with them and put
it in their apartment in Germany :) as they live there, so I'm
really pleased they liked the wedding present.
btw it arrived few days before the wedding which was great :)

Thanks for your comment on the "Poppies" Denise and Deedee :) It's appreciated
Denise I'll look forward to hearing some news on how it's going with the Matt varnish
or to see the new work you were about to paint for your balcony :)

Hope everyone's well :))
