When my wife and I married we registered for these great Denby dishes because we both loved the vivid colors. Turns out, after painting bright colored fruits, they aren't as vivid as I thought when it comes to painting them. I didn't originally like these when I had finished them, but over time there's enough going on that I am starting to enjoy them. I think what frustrated me at the time was how I was laying down the paint. I wasn't as accurate with each brush stroke as I wanted and needed to work over areas multiple times. I guess the time away from the painting has helped to soften those feelings and I can just judge it as it stands.
