I printed out the template and look forward to watching this tomorrow. Unfortunately, my "studio" table is filled with Christmas food and drinks  :D. The actual painting will have to wait until after the holidays when it is nice and quiet.

Dennis great lesson loved painting the old Mill but found hard to keep up.  Kept going long after leson.  Please need you to tell me where I have gone wrong.  Found centre of the house hard to paint.  Any comments would be greatly appreciated.  In the meantime I wish you and all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy Healthy and prosperous New Year.  Looking forward to my next water colour lesson.  Ciao Pinuccia

Pinuccia,

This is quite a lovely painting.  I can see why it was hard to keep up.  There are so many details.

Only concern I have is the tan-colored spot to the right of the house.  The tree trunk to the left seems to be stuck in it.

Other than that, I'd say you did very well.

aloha

 :heeha: Brilliant Pinuccia  :clap: :clap: :clap:  I have been waiting for this lesson...then had to miss it initially as took great grandkids and grandkids up to see mum. Worth it to see her face.

Besides...I was naughty watching too many reruns of drawing dogs and ran out my sister's internet.  :eek: So I'm in the doghouse for a few more days until it resets  ::)   ;D

So... up at mum's using hers!  >:D    :2funny:

Can't wait to have a go.....   :painting:

Pinuccia you did a nice painting,   :clap: :clap: :clap:   one thing I would modify is the left hand side tree, there are branches that are on the house but the tree seem to be in the back because the base of the trunck is to far away, you should bring it down in front of the bridge.  (Check Dennis' painting).  Hope this helps.
Title: Re: LESSON #96 - The Old Mill
Post by: Pinuccia on December 24, 2014, 12:10:52 AM
 :thankyou: Danielle. I really appreciate your advice. I  had a look at Dennis painting and your so right the trees on the left need modifying. Actually I wasen`t too happy with that side of the painting and you kindly made me see what was wrong. Hopefully I will be able to fix it. Thank you again. Have a Merry Christmas.  :1hug:  Pinuccia.

Do not worry, you can fix it, it is not has hard has people think it is.   

I myself practicaly ruined  my first lesson of the realistic flower by putting a background. It is still not as nice as the white background.  I think I will post it in the first lesson to show that things can be fixed to a certain degree.

When the festivities are over I will modify the trees and post it. Thank you for all your advice girls much appreciated..

Sharon nice job. I like your trees and your building. The only thing that does not look right to me is the water wheel. The spokes (or what ever they are call) looks like they are angled up. Look at the one Dennis did. You will see what I am saying.  :clap:

Yup, Sharon, the wonky wheel is better now.

The very bottom of the front/side wall is a tiny bit out of line - not perfectly perpendicular.

Otherwise, it's great.   Just love those tree skeletons!

[smg id=18983 I do not know if my first photo was posted here so I am sending another of the revised  "The old Mill". Your comments will be greatly  appreciated.  I altered the left hand trees and brought them down to the bridge. The right hand trees brought further in and added some green  on the right hand side. Separated the right hand side brick wall from  the small upper brick wall. I thought I had better stop before I completely spoil the painting. Looking forward to hearing from you.  Ciao  Pinuccia.

Great work, both of you.

Post by: NHC50 on December 29, 2014, 11:45:54 AM
Pinuccia you painting is a lot better.  :clap: if you will look at the right side of the building where the rock wall is you will see that it goes down the side of the building. Your wall stops and it makes the building look like it has a hole under it. Or floating. Bring the wall down and it will make the building settle down. Hope this helps.

Good job, Susan - i like how you have water running through the mill! On the brick fence to the right,  I think your bricks would pop more if you added a bit of underlining beneath each stone - and I think the big hole is see through - a touch of orange will tie it into the background...Love the light on the house!

I did this in pen and ink a little while ago and just love this scene.   Thanks Dennis for a great lesson and I have learned how to do those darn pesky trees when they are in the background!  Here is my stab at this in pure watercolor this time:


For some reason my digital camera is picking up the shadows on the mill as very blue.  They are much more muted in person.

How pretty, Mary Lou! Love the softness to your background, behind the trees. Just a few small things: Perhaps the shadow on the side of the building could fade away a bit more toward the bottom? And I notice a white patch of paper between the 2 fences that would likely be in the shade. Could you make your black between the spokes of the wheel just a tad darker?

Well, I finally finished it!!  Phone camera didn't pick up the brickwork, and a few other things.  LOL   Got the frame just fine... :2funny: .
I'd like to redo this one for my living room.

Thanks, Danielle.  I enjoyed doing this one, and there is some "tweaking" to be done.

Retta, don't you just hate when you can't photograph once behind the glazing
You've done a lovely job with this watercolor.  :clap:

Lovely painting, Retta :clap: :clap: :clap:  I've often had to take a painting out of the frame to take a sharp photograph of it, and then reframe.

Thanks so much Robin, Mea, Josie and Dennis.  It's been a long time since I have had anything up on the forum...(darned camera!).  LOL
There is no glass on the picture....that's why I really like it!!  It's easy to change, but I've had my rose pic in it for a couple of years and needed something new.
Thanks, again.  Am working on the fuschia.  Phew!  Looking forward to class two days from now!

Thank you so much, Val, Tania and Selen.  It was fun, and I think it's a 'do again' picture.  It was enjoyable to do.

I found some info on this old mill. This old mill is in Little Rock Arkansas. It is a recreation of an old 1880's mill, that was used in the opening scenes of Gone With The Wind movie. Just thought you might like to know that.
If I ever get to Little Rock I will have to check it out.

Hi Dennis, It has been a while since I have been on PB.   Yesterday I got this video and I was wondering why the Old mill  is not opening.  It says  that "this video does not exist".  Thank you Dennis  :smitten:

Just checked and you are right Danielle. It has gone "POOF"!!!  :eek:

Will look into it for you.

Should be sorted shortly Danielle. Our techies are on the way!  :run:

Thank you Dennis for the fix.    :-*

Patricia and friends , I have been busy spending time with my son, daughter in law an my little Ella (grand daughter) a week here and there this summer.  After spending a week or so at there place  3.5hrs away  I was exausted.  Little ones do need your attention, and it took me a while to get back into drawing.  But I loved every minute of it. Ella is growing so fast 6 months now and in 10 days we will go see them again for a few days.  I was also sewing, crocheing little dresses for Ella and baby showers.  I also wanted to spend a bit more time outdoors since summer is short.  I have been doing some portrait practice sketch with Nolan and other artist lesson this past 2 weeks.  I will pop in one in a while.
Keep the great work.   :hug:
