I asked Nolan about it but he has not come back to me yet. I get it sometimes as well but when I open up in another computer it shows the picture :confused:

Yes Nolan the wizard. He will figure it out. By the way I also have the same thing happening when other artist up load their work on here. I can't see it.

Dennis, I too am experiencing the same thing and I cannot upload the reference photograph or drawing either. When I click on the "Reference pdf" below the video, I just get a blank screen.  Hope Nolan can sort out the problem for us.

 O0  Slowly getting used to a new system. Even with a procedure it is easy to forget one small point - especially when you think you have it off pat and put the procedure one side  :whistle:  However easy and quick to fix up. :flowers:

Patricia,

This painting is enticing me to take this class.  Looks like a fun one to do.

I love a rustic look, right down to the little hook on the shutter.

I like the soft colors on this, contrasted by the brightness of the red flowers.

Good work.

 :heeha: Good on you Patricia! I got to see about 15 minutes of this....seems internet issues are still an issue. Has been on and off all night and this morning.  :tickedoff:

You've done a lovely job on this, I'm thinking perhaps a bit darker shading on the flower pot, and look for the darker shadowed areas. Just a few tweaks and you'll have an excellent piece. Great work, well done.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

ps... I know, I have to constantly remind myself to 'mind the darks'!  :doh:     ;D
Title: Re: PA - LESSON #32 - Window Flower Pot

Very well done, Patricia :clap:  Just add more shading to the left side of the pot to give it volume and roundness O0

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Thank you so much Danielle and thank you too for being "picky" because that is the way I learn by others pointing out mistakes that I may not see or even know about because I am still learning.  I appreciate it Danielle and please don't ever hold back on things that I can improve on.  I am so grateful for everyone's help.


Robin and Cyril thank you for your kind comments too.  I appreciate them all.

looks really good Vidar.. maybe some lights and a bit more darks in the flower.. it looks almost all one shade in the image..  Your wood around the window is awesome!

Vidar,

I agree with lin.  Your wood is amazingly good - great texture.  Agree also that the pot needs contrasts to show roundness.
