Our winter break (one week long) from school is coming to an end. I had very nice time and opportunity to make these paintings (A4 in size). I'm about to do more when my school allows time since its kinda hard and hectic time in high schools second grade :good2:

Lovely watercolours! I do like the eddy.

Once my exams are over, I'll get back to painting CPs again :tu:

Wow thank you so much guys! :blush: And sorry for my grammar mistakes!
Oh well selling them would be nice since I have a little money to buy new plants this year. I have paypal and our post office has thick cardbord packages to them in. Only problem (?) Im seeing is the copyright thingy. You know, I havent taken those photos, just drawn the plant and the background almost like the reference has them. However they are not 100% copies since I have changed colours and positions and left out some things from the reference.

So the question is this: Am I allowed to sell these paintings?

Hi Snowwy
Yes you can sell them if you wish. Just remember to put your signature on them. If you're worried about the copyright, you can indicate where you got the reference photo from on an atta hed piece of paper, but it shouldn't really be a problem.

Great, thanks! Im so used to all copyright blames (not me but people I know) from an internet site deviantArt. Its everyday in journals telling that someone has copied someone elses work and "how shameful is that and blablabla". I was just unsure :)

Beautiful paintings. The light reflection (shine) you achieve is fantastic.
