OH--how exciting to find out who got my art!  ha--glad you like purple...it was really just a coincidence...I am in a single color phase...so far I have used pink, green and purple...wonder what next round I will be in the mood for? Cheesy and, really, crafting IS hard work! Wink

I just love seeing all the different pieces and learning how they are done!

my rocks do not look like rocks
Try looking at actual rocks, and notice there color. In nature there is no black just dark shades of blues and purples. Ex. if you had made the rocks blue let the watercolors dry and then went in with the black very sparingly and added some texture your rocks; they would have looked like rocks. If you want to keep dabbling with more art less craft, I recommend you take a drawing class. Drawing things and having them look like the actual thing you are drawing is really hard and requires a new way of seeing things.

A little exercise to stretch your skills and help you see.

One of the best things you can do to learn to draw is to take a wild messy looking plant (a real one not a photo) and sit it in front of you, look at the shapes of the plant. If you look carefully you will see the different colors and textures of the leaves make little shapes that make up the leaves. Its not just a tear drop shaped. and that the places between the leaves are also shapes (this is called the negative space, while the leaves are the positive space). Now take one leave and look just at it. Now take a ball point pen and a peace of paper and using one continuous line try drawing the shapes you see making up the leave, you can draw over your lines to make new shapes and don't worry if you make a mistake. After about 15 to 20 times of doing this your leave will start to look like the real thing. And once you have that down, try drawing the negative spaces in the plant using the same technique, after a few times of doing that it will also start to look like a plant. Plants are the easiest thing to learn to draw from life, they almost always look good even when you mess up.

Keep trying you will get there.
