Toasting the winner by fredasurgenor Toasting the winner by fredasurgenor
This painting is watercolour on paper. I am putting it in an Art show at The Royal Art Society with the theme "At the races" which celebrates the most famous race meeting in Australia - The Melbourne Cup.

I have used an image kindly supplied by Marcus Ranum, his website is at [link] and I can only thank him deeply for his generosity in letting us have free use of his photos.

His beautiful photo which I used as reference is here: [link] and I simply added a hat and a champagne glass.

Thank you all for the faves, watches and kind comments, I really appreciate these

Hey Anna, :wave: there you are.............how nice to hear from you, I hadn't seen any activity from you for ages, but I assume you are concentrating on your photography now.

Hi, I'm using this account too, but slightly less proliferously than before. I also run some groups from it - and there is a section in #Creative-Obsessions for traditional art too! :nod:

Wow, your watercolours look very "solid"! :)
I like all the shades and wrinkles in her skirt and the hat is amazing.
