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

  4. 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?

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

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

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

  10. 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

    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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  30. 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!

  31. 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.
