Lacework is too fine, so I went for the next best and pretended it was lace, because I had mislaid my magnifying glass and the 2-hair brush :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

This was actually a very relaxing lesson - and a great idea of something unique to paint! Hardest part was tracing it on the watercolor paper! Thanks, Dennis - I actually learned a lot in this class!

OMG, Sharon.  That's beautifully done.  And in watercolor - what a challenge!

I was looking at that lesson and thinking I couldn't do that!   Hmmm... maybe I will try it.

Embroidery is the proper term for that type of handiwork, I think.

Thank you Steve, Dennis, Susan and Mea! My husband says it reminds him of his mother's doilies! I want to look around for some similar material to try a painting like this on my own!

Thanks Kathy! I showed this to a friend and she said it's very spiritual - a bit like a Mandela!

I can see why your friend would say that. I agree. As you stated on OLA, it was the most relaxing class you ever took. That shows in your painting. It is peaceful.

Relaxing class you say Sharon..... I'll have to have a look at this one. You did a wonderful job on this.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Val - and if you need to relax, definitely take this class - especially the part when you paint the background...there is a bit of time with the camera isn't on the painting so you have to improvise a bit, but heck, we're all pros by now is it's no biggie!

 :doh: I received a message from on of my students who is waiting for me in the Rio. Wanted to know if I would consider making a video for the class! At my rate they'd have to make a sequel out of it!!!  :crazy2:

You are the 'Go Pro', whereas I am the 'Slow Pro' !  :2funny:

 :sweat: I decided to have a go at this yesterday, and did make a few minor changes. Mine is a smaller format and rather than shrink it down and go (http://d326oobcc22bax.cloudfront.net/content/50125/1507044.GIF)  I chopped off some of the outer edges. My version is 17x23 (6 5/8"x9")

I did watch the video, but decided I need the practice and worked direct from the photo. I must be be mad!  :crazy2:   I did the drawing, painted the background, and put in the shadows! I may have gone through a third of a bottle of eye drops, and half a box of kleenex polishing/cleaning my glasses and my magnifier!  :tongue:    I really need one of those big ones to clamp on the table.
Lloyd didn't even complain (too much) about missing his lunch and getting a throw together supper!  :2funny:

My eyes are in need of a bit of a rest after that, so thought I'd post this for anything you might see that I may have missed (Sharp eyed Sharon & Dead Eye Dennis  ;) ).

If anyone else wants to put in their two pence.... I could use it as I'm a getting a bit low on paper!  :whistle:    ;D

Post by: Val on September 02, 2016, 05:01:59 AM
Note to Dennis....  The comment about shouldn't have trouble unless this is painted in the summertime...never a truer word spoken!  :tongue:

The main cabin was 100F give or take a degree, and the water in my mix was evaporating faster than I could get it on the paper!  :sweat: Have never done so much mixing so quickly...I think it has helped me on that front! No time to fiddle too much. So even though some of the colouring is a bit off, it only took a couple of hours to paint! Now that's amazing!!!  :heeha:

Not so sure about the 'relaxing' bit.  :2funny:

Val.  You did well considering the heat and water evaporation.  Love it.   :clap: :clap:

Stellar job, Val! :yippee::yippee:.

If you want to work on this a bit more, think about strategically adding a gray tone shading to give the material some depth. Right now it's a bit flat. :)
Title: Re: LESSON #112 - Painting Lacework
Post by: mea hamo pena on September 02, 2016, 06:21:51 AM
Wow, Val.  No wonder your eyes are tired.  Such incredible detail.  Good work.

Agree with Steve about the contrast, though.

Sharp Eyed Sharon Here: Really Nice job for not following the video, Val - and you nailed the shadings!  One suggestion: add gray "suggestions" of stitches in the middle section especially, but also on all of the white areas to make it look more like macrame then paper.
Title: Re: LESSON #112 - Painting Lacework
Post by: Val on September 02, 2016, 07:39:19 AM
Thanks guys, this is a work in progress. The various tones have yet to be added once I can focus and see straight again!  :D Hopefully I'll pick a cooler day  (http://d326oobcc22bax.cloudfront.net/content/50337/1508198.GIF)



Title: Re: LESSON #112 - Painting Lacework
Post by: Val on September 02, 2016, 07:39:38 AM
Hey there 'Sharp Eye'  :tooth:   I think there are a few shadings that need a slight touch up, but if they're not really noticeable... I'm willing to let them slide.  ::) Appreciate you stopping in for a boo.  :-*

 :yippee: Wow! This looks great Val.  :smitten:  It is so intricate. I can see why your eyes are tired. As already state, the gray tones for dimension are about all you need to finish it.  :clap:
Title: Re: LESSON #112 - Painting Lacework
Post by: Val on September 02, 2016, 05:21:23 PM
Patricia, I'm sure you would do a bang up job on this. It isn't as difficult as you might think. The drawing is what takes the most time.... in my opinion.  O0   Of course I have yet to add in all the indications of the threads!  :faint:

Thanks much Dennis, unfortunately I've had to put this one into the UFO file for a bit. Even with the magnifying glass I couldn't see the grey properly without making it much too dark. Made a right muck up of it I'm afraid.  :(
I'll get it out again at a later time and see what's to be done.
So...  :heeha: for now I'll stick with the larger items, we have so many wonderful ones to choose from. Plus, I have quite a lineup building since I started going through all of the photos on the old drives! Lots to do!!!  :yippee:     :painting:
