Thanks, Gita.  I'm still experimenting with different paints to see which ones I like.  Have to sit on my hands to keep from buying any more!!!

Yes, Val.  Hope the glitch days are behind us.

Thanks, Maryna.  Darn, this will be the second time I have changed it.

Nolan explained to me that it has to do with the photos that were lost in the glitch.  Now, if we enter a new photo in the gallery, it gets one of the lost numbers.  If the person who had the number has not removed the old number and put in a new photo, the wrong photo goes up.  (Not sure that was the right way to say it.)

This is the Dexter Grist Mill in the historic town of Sandwich, Mass. on Cape Cod.

I am doing some Cape Cod paintings for my friends whom I will visit next week.


Please let me know ASAP if it needs a tweak as it will get matted and packed on Sunday.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Just recheck the perspective of the waterwheel - the outside circle is much too small. All the paddles mus be horizontal and parallel to each other - they are flaring towards the building. Otherwise, well done O0

Thanks, Dennis and Gita.  I have made the changes as best I could to the waterwheel.  You were so right.  It definitely was way off. The painting looks so much better now. 


I also was able to repaint the grass with the new Chromium Green Oxide paint that Terri used in the background for her daffodils.  I bought both watercolor and oil versions - Daniel Smith.  Haven't tried the oil yet, but LOVE the watercolor version.  What a beautiful green.  Thanks, Terri.

Thanks, Linley.  I have been looking for a good green for a long time.  Tried mixing my own, but never had good luck.

Think I have found it with the chromium green oxide.

That's beautiful MEA, the perspective is spot on now and the colors are so nice.
