I'm just about to start this one it's looks fun and difficult in equal measures. Danielle and Mea you both did a brilliant job on this and with Sharon also about to start it makes me a little nervous following you guys if you don't see a post within the next two weeks put the Paint Basket flag at half mast

Hey Neil - I love that we'll be painting this one together! I've just sketched mine out. The contact paper isn't sticking to my canvas so I'll need to be very careful painting around everything. Let's both post after video 2!
Cheers,
Sharon

Mea thanks for the encouragement I must have a go now love the cheerleaders
Sharon I've also just sketched mine out and I am expecting a delivery of the sticky masking sheets tomorrow I've never used it before but it seems necessary for this one with all the spattering etc not 100% sure if I can get away with it I'm liable to cut through the canvas if not I'll be doing it your way  :gl:

Having just watched video 2, I either need to wait to do this class after I get a few more oil lessons under my belt...or I really need to find some sticky contact paper to cover up the images. No way I could paint this without that! I'm wondering if it's just too hot for the contact paper. I got it from amazon. Maybe I'll try the $$ store and see if they have something better...
Cheers,
Sharon

It's going to be difficult to do without some sort of masking. I feel the same way as you I don't think I'm experienced enough to confidently tackle this but I think my masking has worked and I've finished the background. I have also set up a practice canvas to test out the various techniques as I go along before I commit to my actual painting. This could be the end of my short lived oil painting career

Sharon, I have the hardest time with the clear cover. For some reason it never sticks well for me either. I have noticed that it works better on canvases with a finer tooth, like the Fredrix Ultra Smooth canvases. Sometimes I use masking tape instead. Have you seen Nolan's tulip class? That's how he does it in that class and it works really well. Just takes a lot longer to get it perfect.

just keep trying different brands of clear cover - some do stick better than others.

another alternative is the clear packaging tape, it will work just as well O0

Neil - no quitting yet, you are just getting started and have HUGE potential :knuppel2: :knuppel2: :knuppel2:

So this is where I am so far as you can see the mask didn't work perfectly but I think it will look better when the spoons are in it's a tough one

Off to a good start, Neil.  I did away with some of the ornateness of the spoons because it looked too complicated for me.

It's kinds easy to fix the shapes because of the very dark background.

Aren't the spice colors fun for a change!

 :heeha:   Good on you Neil, coming on famously.  O0   I didn't get to see the whole lessons, but it looked a real challenge and you are certainly up to it judging by this. Keep on, you've got this  :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:        :yippee:
Cheers, Val
