There, there, don't cry Paulette . I did not take offense at your suggestions. You saw a different picture opportunity than I did that's all. Your suggestions were well intended and are ones that I can learn from, thank you for sharing them with me.

I'm glad that you like the vivid colors and artistic effect that I used Paulette.

Doug, I'm glad you said that because I don't like that either. I'll do some work there. Anything else, please let me know...

Red face Here's my improved image based upon your feedback...

I think I'm finished with it now. I've encorporated all the suggestions made in the group, and some of my own, and I'm pretty well pleased with it at this point.

- I worked on the skin tones - big improvement there.
- I restored the "thing" on left from original and left it alone, since I don't know what it is. It seems too squarish to be a stump.
- I added some more flowers.
- I made the texture in the sky more even
- I removed the dark areas in the grass
- I made it into an album page (sized to fit 8x10 frame or mat) and added storyline and small photo of my grandmother.

To see my watercolored image with above improvements, click here:

Or if the link above doesn't work, see my posted titled "See Lilla's AFTER image here..." posted on 24 Aug 2001.

I wanted to share the final result with the group, and to say thank you all so very much for your input and kind words of appreciation and encouragement.

Lilla

Maybe attach before/after in case that link disappears in the future?

See Lilla's BEFORE image here...

I have attached my BEFORE image here. I will attached my AFTER image in a separate/next post. This assures that others can view my image even if my home page links should change. I originally used links to my home page.

Doug, good idea. I uploaded my BEFORE/AFTER images and replaced the links to my homepage with links to the attachments. Is this what you had in mind?

Is it OK to link to attachments the way I did? I mean are they guaranteed not to change? If so, I can pull my "if this link doesn't work, see my post titled... posted on ..." qualifier. It's handy being able to link to an attachment, I hadn't thought about trying that before.
