Dit ziet er weer zo echt uit. En de kastanjes zijn ook erg mooi en verrassend. Knap werk weer Judy. Ook de vorige.

They are really interesting things 'conkers' I can see why you would want to paint them ... and you do, wonderfully!

Anns Art said...

This is lovely, and what a great shine you have achieved. How do you find the Canson Fontenay compared to the Arches? - which do you prefer?

Betty said...

They do look beautiful - I am having a go with some watercolours too - seeing all these things in nature is so inspiring.

Rita Vaselli said...

Dear Judy,so nice series!Soft colors but with a strong tone scale!
Happy Week!

Cora said...

Prachtige kastanjes. Ik vind de kleuren zo zacht en mooi. Ik heb van middag ook een kastanje geschets maar niet geslaagd. Groetjes.

Sharon Whitley said...

brilliant Judy!

renate said...

Lieve Judy:) Prachtig, wat een mooie kleuren. Wat voor nummer kwast heb je gebruikt? Lijkt me nogal priegelwerk of niet?

Jane said...

...and you paint them beautifully :-) xx

Judy said...

Thanks Ashok!

Dankje Danielle, ik ben benieuwd naar jouw kastanjes!

Dankje Marja! Ik vind ze erg leuk om te schilderen!

Thanks John, I like them and I like to paint them!

Thanks Ann! I definitely prefer Canson Fontenay, it is smoother cotton paper and it can cope with my very wet way of painting. It does not buckle, Arches does, in my experience. But I know people who prefer Arches and absolutely hate the smoothness of C.F.

Thanks Betty! Looking forward to your watercolours, autumn is so inspiring!

Thank you Rita, I am glad you like them! I like painting the subtle shadows to give them the impression of their round shapes.

Dankjewel Cora! Het zal je vast wel lukken, succes!

Thanks Sharon!

Dankje lieve Renate! Ik heb voornamelijk twee kwasten gebruikt: een nr.10 van Da Vinci, en een nr.6 van Winsor&Newton met een fantastisch punt! Priegelen viel wel mee. :)

Thanks Jane! xx

Love them, Judy!!! :)

Beautiful conkers, Judy.
Which paper did you prefer?

Judy said...

Thank you Hilda and Kathryn!

Thanks Pat! I definitely prefer Canson Fontenay, it is smoother cotton paper and it can cope with my very wet way of painting. It does not buckle, Arches does, in my experience. But I know people who prefer Arches and absolutely hate the smoothness of C.F.

Sympa de voir les différences entre les deux papiers. Bises !

John (JWJarts) said...

I really like this Judy. Very nice. I must try the Canson Fontenay.

Sergio DS said...

Me encantan las castañas, sobre todo las que tú pintas.
¡Enhorabuena!

Judy said...

Sandra, thank you, I love the autumn colours!

Lydie, merci, bises!

John, thank you, I'd love to know what you think of CF paper.

Sergio, muchas gracias! 'Kastanjes', 'castañas', suena casi igual!

Susan said...

Beautiful - in their many shapes and pieces!

Jerry said...

So lovely Judy. These bring back memories of collecting them to play the game conkers. Have you ever played it?

Catharina Engberg said...

As lovely as the other ones. What kind of red do you use in this last one?
Hope you had a nice weekend. Take care!

Judy said...

Thank you Susan!

Thank you Jerry! We don't know the game of conkers in Holland, but John mentioned it too.

Hello Catharina, I used burnt sienna, and quinacridone rose for accents.

Shirley Fachilla said...

You are one of the marvelous blogging artists that demonstrate time after time how beautiful the medium of watercolor can be.

Mari Jose Molina said...

Hi Judy, This is lovely and delicate.. good job!

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

I like your watercolor style so much. This painting is so full with autumn mood. Which paper is more comfortable for you Arches or Fontenay??

AK said...

You have a nice loose style. Great works.

Judy said...

Thank you so much, Shirley!

Thank you Mari Jose!

Hi Irina, thanks! I have the most experience with Fontenay, but I want to try Arches now too.

Thank you Asit!
