 :clap: :clap: :clap: for both the paint-a-longs. That you managed to get that far is an achievement in itself.
Annie, I see you used a larger panel than 16x20".

No Dennis, I use a Fredix acrylic 16x20" sheet and put your template in the lowest corner.  I did this before the lesson and masked the still life.  I was puzzled when I saw yours and Gina filling most of the surface.

I spent 3 hours today repainting the choco and the grapes. much better.  I will repost when I do the wine glass.
Cheers, Annie

Patricia, thank you so much. I learnt so much in this class that I really can´t wait to add something to it. I wish I had 48 hours per day.  :whistle:

That was an exceptional class! Many thanks Dennis.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I think I have finally figured out some of the errors I continually make with the glass. I shall have to make a few practice runs.
Cheers, Val

Gita this is fabulous! Never ceases to amaze how you guys get through these paint-a-longs and end up with a painting that actually looks like the intended subject!  ;D

Great job, well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Val, thank you so much, I did struggle in keeping up, but I  collected all my boldness  and just applied the colours without giving too much a thought of the would be results. I am so glad I can paint again with Acrylics after a long pause. I am looking forward to do more acrylic classes, now.  :cheering: :cheering:

The grapes are getting rounder.  Thank you Dennis for the clear explanation about making objects round with main color, highlight, and shadow colours.

I am giving myself a good point for finishing the whole painting in acrylic.  At one point, I started to get the idea of what doing washes one over the other meant.  I actually enjoyed the process very much. 

Here it is... unfortunately, without any added pretty critters  :)

Cheers, Annie
