I am glad there are replays! I think the hardest thing in painting along is catching all the colour mixing and scrambling for brush changes. Your commentary helps a lot Nolan. Next time I try painting along like this where the painting is cumulative I will start with my canvas the right way up and use a nice big one!

this is what someone commented.

 I like the balance of individual elements in the landscape but I think the colours are perhaps a little too vivid for this picture. (Problem is of course that very often real life does not look realistic!!)

I really like your painting, Maryna.  It looks like a cozy, restful spot.

You did a nice job with the light on the fence and the rock.  It's often the finishing touches that really add that sparkle to a painting.

Well done!   :congrats:
