Thanks.  I start watching it... I may give it a try.  Really sounds like fun, as Dennis commented.

Did you guys use acrylic or oil?  I would think the first blue for the sky would dry before the second pass if done acrylics.  So would not blend as with oil.  Is this comment right or wrong?
Cheers, Annie

Val I think Nolan suggested 16 by 20.
I used Watercolour paper..about 9 by 14.


Annie...I  did in Acrylics , so did Fiona I believe.


i think Nolan did in oils.


This was more of layering rather then blending so worked fine in Acrylics.

I used acrylics, I have loads of odd tubes lying around and I just grabbed some likely colours and went to town  :)  I am still walking around with paint firmly cemented under my fingernails.... And I've had to tye-dye the t-shirt I was wearing as well  :2funny: :2funny: I think there was more paint on it than on the canvas!

Thanks Zayn, I do remember Nolan saying no extra medium would be required.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this class (what I saw  :tickedoff: ). That Nolan is just too cute.... those little giggles like a schoolboy!  ;)    ;D

Umm, am I going to need to duck?  :peace:
Cheers, Val

Yap, likely 😂

You all make me laugh... looks like gloves did not work as intended either.

I will try with acrylics, more paint to play with.  I am giggling just at the though of trying a van Gogh with my fingers.  Yes, why stop at one index when I have 10 eager fingers to paint with.

Here is an idea, use one finger per colour... so no need to wash or clean them between different colours.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Oh, fun, Nolan.  That's really cool.

Now I have to carve out some time to try this.
