    I have just joined this group. Thank you, Charlie, and congratulations for such hard work and for creating this forum!
    Here I share one of my watercolors.
    I made this illustration on a piece of paper that I had stretched and painted on with some color gradations a few years ago. I don’t know what my original idea for this was, or why I abandoned it. But whatever the reason I repurposed it to paint some free-style winged creatures. dragonfly-Primavera

    • Beautiful painting! It’s like a painting of summer!

      • Thank you Ellie. I’m happy you like it. I added to the caption more of the story on how it came to be: “I made this illustration on a piece of paper that I had stretched and painted on with some color gradations a few years ago.

    • Gorgeous work, Leyla! So happy you joined us!! 😍

      • Really great idea, Charlie. I cannot figure out how to create albums for my photos. Do you have a link to info explaining that?

        • Thanks, Leyla! My hope is to have a getting started page, but I haven’t quite had time to make it yet. 😊 From your Artwork tab on your profile, you can click that and then “Albums” and then “Create Album” should appear to make new ones. You can add a photo to the album there (I’ve disabled the batch upload as it groups everything into one post and then doesn’t allow single comments on photos… still investigating that), but you can upload them one at a time there. Or, when you’re viewing your posts on your wall, there should be an “Album” link under your image. You can also click that to add to an Album. Let me know if that works!

    • This is lovely, as a newb! I love to hear how and why people create their art pieces. I have bits of practice stuff all over my ‘studio’ . I be seen artists on YouTube making paintings from old either practice doodles or technique trials. It gives me hope as well as inspiration. Also saves wasting expensive materials. Please do some more!

      • Thank you Susan! I’ll be posting more of my pieces and links to my blog posts and videos as well, where I share about my painting process. I invite you to visit at LeylaTorres.com

    • Leyla, your painting makes lovely pattern on cloth, plates etc! Great work on repurposing it!

    • Lovely, light filled colors.
