Dennis thanks for this class. I hardly wait for it! I wanted to paint fog, but I was afraid. Now I'll be able to learn.  :thankyou:

William, I have a large roll of primed canvas (fine weave) and have taped a piece to another canvas panel just for a support.

here it is, I had fun painting this lesson, also painting myself in the process,  I find it stressing to try to go fast so my paint does not dry on me.  I did it on a watercolour paper primed with gesso, not the best result but good for practice.  i struggled with the shoreline and the part of water between bushes. Advice welcome.
    :thankyou: Dennis for the lesson and the wonderfull challenge you have given me for the year.   :1hug:

Danielle is beautiful. I am still struggling with. Hopefully I'll be able to finish tomorrow. Danielle, if you look at Joann fabrics or Michaels they have blocks of canvas paper. It is great for practice.  :flowers:
