Thanks so much for all the encouraging feedback.  It looks like we are in for an exciting year ahead :clap: :clap:

Nolan and I will be doing our very best to give you the best in watercolours and in oils.

With electronics there is bound to be a few hassles along the road - even some of the major webinars that I occasionally watch have problems with servers bombing out, etc. All we can do is to try and keep them to the minimum. Also because we are constantly expanding there are bound to be some hiccups but it is all for the better.

considering the fact that we moved the whole website over to a larger server, completely stripped my studio and converted it to a broadcast studio over the holidays, adding the ability to use 3+ camera angles and installed / set up everything on a new computer with heaps of new equipment and software to run everything, having only the problem of too many people on was a miracle  ;D

Just how you got that server up so quickly is mind-boggling!  Cool as a cucumber, Nolan! Altho' I'd loved to have been a fly on the wall (with soundtrack)  :whistle:

Good show last night, gents.  Thank you so much.

Would not have helped to listen in as not a sound came from Nolan's lips - but you should have seen his face :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Dennis and Nolan,
I just finished the replay.  You both did a fantastic job! :clap: Great teaching, Dennis! The videography was terrific, Nolan! Transitions were very smooth. I see you have been very busy setting up a new system. Well done! O0

Dennis, I do have a question about the paints.  This will be my first experience with wc. You did not clean your brush before you dipped into other colors.  Does this not make the paints "dirty"?

Can't wait to get started. (That is if I can get my 19 month old grand daughter to take a long enough nap!!! :) )

I see you are very observant :whistle:
You want to see  some watercolourist's palettes and you wonder just how they can produce such clean and vibrant paintings. It is relatively easy to quickly wipe off the other colours off the top of the paints in the pans to get back to the clean original colour. I think I will demonstrate that in the next class - even if the water in the container is relatively dirty as well.

Glad you like our new set-up - it's a pleasure for us to work as well.
