Title: Paint Basket E-Newsletter - Coming Soon
Post by: mea hamo pena on September 15, 2016, 06:25:07 PM
Please be on the lookout for the latest newsletter  as it has been sent to Nolan for distribution to the email address associated with your Paint Basket Forum membership. I will send out notifications as soon as it is sent. 

If you do not receive it in a few days after I send the ALL SENT notice, please check to see if your address is correct in your PB profile or look in your SPAM folder.

Thank you to the PB members who have been sending suggestions.  We really want to make this e-newsletter reflect your wants and interests.  Keep your ideas coming.

 :thankyou: Thank you Mea! I just read the newsletter. What a delightful surprise to see my caterpillar painting.  :smitten:
I am enjoying all of the topics you are writing about. I love that ladybug painting. I am going to check it out and see if it would tranlate well to water color.  ;) The tip to use pencil end erasers is a gem. I hope one day to have a topic of interest to pass on to you as well. Keep them coming!  :-* :1hug:

Another very informative newsletter and i like the tip about the coloured eraser. You could also use  these different colour tips for the different lead pencils instead of painting them like Nolan does. 😀

TeresaM,

Thank you for the kind words on the newsletter.

To make it easy on me since I would have trouble remembering the coding for multiple colors, I use yellow tips on the H pencils and purple tips on the B pencils.  H, HB and F are left untipped. 

aloha

mea (So what is the F pencil all about? Tombow includes one in its 12-pack as does Pentalic.)

Thanks, KathyS.  Your caterpillar was certainly worthy of being featured in the newsletter.  I love how you tried different things to get to the finished product, kept us in the loop, and used our suggestions.

I know when I put up a painting, I hope PB-ers will give me feedback to make it better.

I look forward to getting suggestions from you and and all PB members to help create a newsletter that is worth reading and learning from.

I, like Patricia, want to thank you.  I have not been "active" on the forum for some time, and the wonderful job you are doing with the newsletter. reminds me to "Check IN" on the "Family"... As wonderful as Dennis and Nolan are as artist , teachers and as human beings, The Paint Basket "Family" kept me going when I had doubts or was "out of sorts"
again, thank you for a job well done, and thank you Dennis and Nolan for putting this very neat Lady in this position!

It's my pleasure to be able to pick artworks that jump out at me so that I can feature them.  The minute I saw yours, it captured my attention.  It had the WOW factor I look for.

I remember the first time Nolan featured something I had done - it made me feel so good - gave me confidence to continue.

Glad it made you happy.
