Amazing effort Val - I hope you made it. I must have booked too late. I can't get on today so I'll just have to do the replay later. Enjoy the class everybody and I'll look forward to the paintalongs!

Well Karen, you're not alone. My computer was out after I installed Internet Explorer 10. I do not know what I've done, what I checked or what I reset, my computer works for the last 5 minutes. I am amazed of how attached we all are to this computer! Is looks just few years ago, that when I received at work a computer I told my boss to give to someone else. Did not work! Now if I don't have it one day, is panic time  :tickedoff:  :fight:   >:(  :(  :'( Doina

Val, your bushes are nothing to be ashamed of.  They look beautiful.  O0 You're off to a good start.   Enjoy the time with your mom.

Jennylynn you did do a masterful job of this. The sunsetish, warm coloring in the tree and repeated in the road is very pretty.
Val what you have finished is wonderful. The negative space work in the bottom of your hedge is really effective.
No selling yourself short Brian. Your road with its ruts looks so natural, and the figure is to die for. Well done!

Wow....you did a banner job, Jenn, Bri .....spectacular.  Val, you are off to a great start. I'm looking forward the finished pic.
You guys did great keeping up!
I came to screeching halt when I heard 'wet in wet'!!  My paper dries out too quickly. When I compensate for it, I get Q C's speciality .  I'll just poke along at my speed.
Dennis will be Proud!!!!!

3rd time i have attempted to reply.

so quickly!!!    I very much like the leaves at the top of the tree they give weight and mass to the tree in a very nice way. and the trees in the distance are super. the lights and darks + the toneal values between the grouping is super .

I think every one of you deserves a standing ovation...this was such a beautiful painting but even being there, it did not look like it was easy - I know DENNIS made it look easy but I'm pretty sure it's not (which no doubt I'll prove lol) so you all did incredible jobs!  I think each one is great!  Hat's off to ye!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

You are too kind Mary.  :1hug:  By but its been a while since I had a good splashing about with the w/c. I generally fall behind and have to wait for the replay, but I do seem to pick up a lot of good bits...probably because there's no time to really think about it...ya just do it!  ;D

Pretty, Patricia! This seems like a magical place I have not experienced. The unique background trees, tall hedge rows and the blue gum tree are all charming. And you have done a beautiful job of depicting Dennis' vision.

 :smitten: Everyone did an impressive job!  I had to scoot before class was finished-just as well since I blobbed my person up and made a mess.  It will be a replay for me!  Since Val likes to see the warts and all here's mine:

Title: Re: LESSON # 56 - Blue Gum Trees
Post by: Rkymtnmary on April 01, 2013, 09:40:31 AM
Natalie...you made me laugh before I even clicked on it as it sounded like something I would say about my own painting...lol....BUT...it's gorgeous as always and I think there could be a very strong case for this being the kind of card or photo that illustrates the concept of someone either walking in light or going toward the light or something of a spiritual nature.  You can make out that there's a figure in all the "light" so I dunno...you may have created a masterpiece!  LOL...I'm serious!
Title: Re: LESSON # 56 - Blue Gum Trees

Pat, I don't like to see those blushing faces in your post!   :nono:

You managed to finish your painting and congratulations!  Anyone who actually finishes a paint along need a medal!   :flowers:   Lots of positives too.  Good job on the distant trees.  Now don't be hard on yourself. 

Natalie, too bad for the "blob"!   :'(   A very nice painting just the same.   O0

I bet you can fix it.  I just know you can.   :1hug:

Post by: Happychappy on April 02, 2013, 02:15:42 AM
 :thankyou:  Lillian for your lovely comments.  I guess I was being "negative" about my painting because I got lost a few times and struggled to get back on track while trying to follow Dennis' instructions. We are our own worst critics and I am a queen of that for sure!  Nevertheless, I appreciate you lifting me up. Thank you Lillian.


 :thankyou: Jennylynn, Oh! Yes, it is good to paint along for sure but I think one must have the correct mind set at the start for there is no time to second guess or fumble around. My nerves get a bit on edge when I can't seem to :run: with the pack. Sign of advancing age?  I think so.  Anyway, thank you for your kind comments which I do appreciate.

Tried to finish this while the site was down...it's a hybrid Blue Gum!  ;D You know how sometimes the colour just doesn't look right?...  ??? ... the brush strokes aren't quite what you're looking for?...  :-\ ... and it just keeps getting bigger...and BIGGER?  :o

The photo has come out much brighter than the painting...willl try for a better shot tomorrow.

Patricia, don't talk yourself old :nono: Think young like I do ;)

Val, your tree is very well done :clap: :clap: :clap: Be careful with the perspective of the road tracks - they get closer together as they disappear into the distance.

Post by: Happychappy on April 11, 2013, 04:32:24 AM
 :thankyou:  Dennis, I need a kick in the butt every now and again to keep me in line.  You are such a wonderful role model and believe it or not, I do try and think "young".  Yes, I am privileged in many respects and I do count my blessings for when I look in the mirror and see these wrinkles, I am blessed, as many were not given that privilege. I have a ton to be grateful for but just need reminders every now and again.  So thanks Dennis!  :-*


God bless. Patricia

Post by: Sarah (arch) on April 11, 2013, 06:08:30 AM
Val!!!! This is beautifully painted. I love it! The light is amazing as is the hedge. I think your decision to leave out the birds and figure was a good one this time, though I like them in all the other paintings. Yours has such a sense of realism, that they might not have blended. I'll make my own story.

I almost missed your comment Dennis  :doh:
Val, your tree is very well done :clap: :clap: :clap: Be careful with the perspective of the road tracks - they get closer together as they disappear into the distance.

Would you believe they were tapered just right..... and then they just dried that way?  :heeha:     >:D

Hi everyone

Bad scan for some reason, can't get it to pick up the blues / yellows properly and the grasses on the left hardly show up at all, but here is my go at the Blue Gum tree anyway.

With over 500 varieties of Gum Trees here in Australia, I'm sure this resembles at least one of them. And that magpie is safe at this time of the year. They only get nasty around nesting time in spring...

There are so many lovely paintings....This is a very interesting lesson.

Nice bluegum tree.  Never having seen a real one, I wonder what those orange-colored things are that hang from it.  Love how you did the trees in the background, kind of like in a mist.

Mea!  If I remember correctly.  The bark peels away from the trunk in strips and that's what you see hanging off the tree.

Sharon, a beautiful blue gum tree. Just soften up the semi-circle above the stroller's head as it is i n the start of the misty area.

Not all eucalyptus tree have bark that peels off in long strips. The name comes from the blue colour of the surface that was behind the bark.

Thanks an easy fix, Dennis…thanks! A friend sent me this bit of history about Blue Gum trees in California:

Luther Burbank imported them from Australia. He meant to bring over the ones that make a good wind break, for areas of Sonoma County and the Berkeley hills. Unfortunately he brought the wrong species, and the ones we have here in the Bay Area break easily in the wind! But so pretty and they smell great.

Thanks Dennis! Im sure you have a lot to do with my style coming through  ;)

Val you are right  ;D, I felt it was to risky to ruin a good painting (which i think is realism?) with one of my dodgy excuses for a figure  :blush:. I nearly did it but thought it was strong enough without one.

Thanks Cyril I also really emjoyed this one. I found it very flowing and most things worked nicely. Your version is superb by the way!

Trev....
   and   
 

Took your advice and tried Dennis's Blue Gums Pastel Pencil and Watercolour lesson. My original effort didn't work our as I tried mixing colours in dim light and got bright purple shadows. It was on cheap paper which wouldn't allow lifting or scrubbing so I cut it up for scrap. In the meantime I found this ref photo of one of my youthful haunts, and decided to try and apply Dennis's method to this subject, which is very similar. Didn't have any pastel pencils, so used water colour pencils instead and was delighted to see the way they showed up the texture of the paper. Rather spoiled the picture by putting my figure too far forward on the track, and so tried adding others to lead the eye back into the picture. It's slightly better quality paper this time, but it still won't take much scrubbing, so they will have to stay. Have definitely learned lots from this lesson.

Thanks everyone else. I felt very comfortable painting these trees, although the greens are not right. That comes of painting with my W&N travel palette with it's limited range of blues and yellows... or that's my excuse anyway. In the meantime I've decided my avatar should be the Muddle-Headed Wombat, a character from an popular Australian children's story. Theresa will know him, I'm sure.    :blush: :blush: (Because of M_H Wombat, not because I'm modest!)

You can keep the painting, only don't sell it or give it away. I must stay in your possession.

Dennis... thankyou. Will act on your advice. Found the photo on Pinterest, although I know that doesn't mean copyright free.
