Hi Karen,

I'm definitely following you. I love the color in this portrait. I'm trying to add more vivid colors which is new to me. Your portraits are a good example for me.

Dear Karen, In this group I want the painting to be red more than half of the surface of the canvas.
Or the main subject (like flower, dress, hat, whatever) can be completely red and the surrounding not being relevant (one minor color). Your painting is too yellowish to meet these requirements.

Don’t hesitate to come back if you have a more red painting.

Best regards, Ruby

Artist Statement
for Karen Murray
Karen MurrayI have never studied art but always enjoyed drawing, it is a hobby and a continual learning curve. I currently work within a well established Breast Cancer Research Group, based in Dundee.
I draw in my spare time, usually night time when my 4 year old daughter is asleep. I plan to try and add colour to my drawings to see what transpires. I would appreciate any suggestions as how to better my drawings and as to which is the next best medium to work with. Please be patient with my watercolour painting as I do struggle with it, infact it is becoming my nemesis, but I will persevere! All your comments have been wonderful and the support here is fantastic. Thank you all very much.There are so many talented artists here, that I do not feel...
I wonder how many here struggle with painting animals such as horses? I am out of my comfort zone trying to do them...any suggestions other than practice...
Hi..i don't do reality well, but..i do understand how you feel, I too am out of my comfort zone when I add reality into my paintings...but...I think you have... view answer
