woyww - poppies and pears

Having finished one online workshop always means I am ready to start another one pretty quickly.  So what I have on my desk is the beginnings of my "pear-ology!" class with Martha Lever.  I really wanted to learn how to glaze and shade in watercolours and the topic of course is pears.  All good for me and you can see the stages of my pears in a workbook.
But I have also been painting Poppies and an Iris just because they are fun.
Have a lovely woyww, a late link up tonight as I am off to work.

  2. Your paintings are wonderful. Love the pears and the flowers, especially the poppies but that is because they are my favourite flowers.
    Thanks for the earlier visit - Hugs, Neet 28 xx

  6. Love those poppies - well done for the online class. I haven't touched my watercolours since my class finished while the Library is refurbished. Your paintings have encouraged me to pick them up again. Thank you for sharing.

    I couldn't play along with WOYWW this week, due to a sick pet, but I am trying to at least get to the blogs that I normally follow.
    Have a great week and stay creative....;)

  22. I think your iris's and poppy's are perfect, brilliant shading. I think you are really talented. Why do all students have to start with pears? Thanks for visiting me already and leaving a lovely comment.

  23. Beautiful flowers, Sandra! They would make such lovely birthday cards. I'm impressed with the pears - nice shading and subtle colouring. Enjoy your course!
    Couldn't find your linky on WOYWW, however hard I looked... I followed the one from the last time I joined in - and there is your post for this time ;-)
