Yes that was an awesome class, can't wait for the replay to get started with it.

Just a question: What colour do I use for the boards against the house?

Thanks again!  :)

Thanks Dennis.  That was a great class.

I tried to use the chat box but my messages took ages to show up until much, much later and sometimes showed up twice in a row.  I finally gave up trying to use it.  I also don't think I saw everyone's input.  Refreshing the chat box didn't help.

The video and sound were perfectly clear.  The video froze a couple of times when I was in the full screen view so I couldn't try to refresh it.  I had to close out Firefox and enter Paintbox TV again.

Anyway, I'm happy to have taken in the class and I will review the replay.

 :thankyou: again.

Same experience as you, Lillian.  Very slow chat.  Finally gave up on that part.  The video work is so much more professional, Dennis and Nolan. Great job!

Loved the lesson, Dennis! Can't wait to try this one! :clap:

I thoroughly enjoyed this class, after missing the first two 'live' classes due to all the technical problems, then discovered I had a serious virus, only got my computer back yesterday, was in a real pannick mode, not to mention severe withdrawal symptoms as my internet service was down. Managed to do the Cosmos, will upload soon as I have smoothed my lines! Phew...... lovely to be back to normal.

Love working with the watercolours, albeit much to learn. Returned back to my Tuesday art class, so expect some more members, they are all interested! 14 in total!

Love the new layout, not to mention your studio.  Well done guys, you deserve much praise.

Dennis i tried to paint along with you and this is the result. You are too fast for me I need a few more years practice. My red should be more orange but i just grabbed the paint I had instead of mixing. I missed seeing the barrel so it's a rock! I didn't have time to step back so my house is crooked.
In some of your lessons we can see the image you are painting from most of the time and it helps a lot to see where you are going- is it too difficult to do with these sessions?
I had a lot of fun - thank you!

we had the biggest amount of attendees yet today, so the server held up well - no video issues which is the most important, but the chatbox groaned under the weight. The chatbox uses a textfile to store the chats so I suspect the chatting was simply too fast for the constant reading and writing to the file to keep up, hence the delays in posting and the missing messages. Some of my chats also never saw the light of day  :crazy2: . After most gave up on the chatbox it actually worked fine with just the few posters  ;D

I will see what I can do to change how the chatbox stores the messages to speed it up.

 Nice work!  By the by, here in northern New York state , USA, there are a number of places where your front porch is the norm.  Many where built that way so water, snow, etc would drain and , later they where enclosed, Some where built on pilings which rise and fall with the freeze - thaw cycles

Again very nice work

P.S.  missed the live class again!!! this time family obligations   I am sooo glad for the replay :clap: :clap: :clap:

Karen :yippee: :yippee: awesome  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Got home, had some lunch, had a catnap and behold - a painting already in the forum :flowers:

Don't worry about the little mistakes - just the mere fact you were able to keep up with me as I was fighting time tells me that you can do wonders at a slower pace. :clap: :clap:

Remember I said that the colour is not the issue. I am also not worried about slight changes made - it the practice that counts. The more you practice the better you get - period!!
