Yes, I remember that video. Had quite a bit of fun...could have used a raincoat!   :2funny:  Someone had mentioned using a light overall wash, I thought that was only for oils or acrylics (?).  Thanks for clarifying that for me.  O0
Cheers, Val

Am Running behind in getting the paintings done and rushed last nite to do # 6.   Way to heavy on the sky!!!  And then...." Wash them out"  even tho i had removed the tape, I was able to greatly improve the painting, ( and correct  a "boo-boo" in design!

In short, Dennis, :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:

Still can not get the "screen" that lets me upload pic to the gallery, If someone could go to the "tech stuff.. how to"

I posted 3 SCREEN SHOTS as PDFs of the screens I get when I try to post pics, maybe from the screen shots i posted, some one can tell me what I'm doing wrong

I do not get the screen I used to get when I first posted pictures to the gallery and I understand the best way to post pic to the forms is by using the BBC code generated when we post to the gallery.

Off to  :painting: and hope my world stays  s   l  o  w enough to do a painting today.. #7, here I come!!
Regards,
Brian

And then they said, "Watercolour is difficult and you cannot fix mistakes!"

I wonder where they got that idea from :confused:

Brian, Your photos need to be saved as jpg files to be able to post them on here.  If you are saving them as jpg files and are just having trouble downloading them, Nolan did a very detailed explanation in another post for Mary.  I believe it is under "Thank you, Dennis." Either page 4 or 5.

It is not up yet. I have not received an email about it yet. Hopefully it won't be long.

Karen I have been following your work very closely for the past few months.

I stand in awe of your ability to paint along with Dennis :clap: :clap:

I see only beauty in your paintings and can only dream of turning out work like yours someday.

thank you Maria, I've been trying to do something every day but it is always easier when things look the way you intended or you can see what to do to make them better. The other people on Paintbasket help a lot.

The problem I am having uploading pictures is I can not get to the "page" on the form that lets me add pictures to my albums.

When I get to "my album" the only option is "EDIT"

and when I go to "EDIT"  all I can do is "browse" which only lets me change my "ICON"

Any suggestions?
Regards,
Brian
