Nolan,
I did not buy the class because I never saw it... Will I get a chance to pay $9.00 within a few hours after the replay shows up?  :confused:
 :thankyou:

 :congrats: Well done Karen, it looks really accomplished. Just one thought though, the distant mountains in the middle seem to be reflecting in the water, if they are in the distance would they reflect?

Nolan, it's good seeing you mix the colours and your explanation of what you are doing is always very clear. I could not see your drawing very well, the lines seemed very faint. I do find it very useful frequently seeing the picture you are painting from because if i have missed anything - like the position of rocks near the waterfall and the depth of reflections, there is some chance of catching up. I had the impression that you were moving faster than usual this time so it was a bit harder. I really appreciate all you do to help anyone painting along. When i'm faster I'll even be able to ask questions at the same time!!

Thank you for your very nice comments everyone. I really appreciate the effort paintbasket people make to encourage other people in their painting. Mahlstick - You might be right - I tried to follow the 'rules' Nolan gave us and I put in a tiny bit of cloud and a wee bit of the mid distance cliff bit. i'm not sure if it would reflect but i thought the top might show and it didn't look quite right without it. I'm waiting for the replay to see exactly where Nolan's reflections went.
Nolan, I don't know about an exhibition, but i'm running out of wall space in my home and so are my family and friends and framing is a luxury.
Claude, all some of us need is a tap, sabotaging the turps won't stop us1 I find work is interfering with my painting too!

You will see I didn't bother reflecting the back mountain as he is too far away.

When you run out of wall space, that is just the time to hold an exhibit O0

I was painting faster than normal, that is the problem when you are painting against time unfortunately  :crazy2:

Lovely reflections Karen   :clap:   I think I added too much sky colour to my water so they have dulled a lot  :idiot2:


I must get myself a hardware brush ... took forever with a little un :)

I can see the photo itself isn't showing the colours correctly, but your water look good Anita - nice shine on the water and that was the whole exercise here  :clap:

The dull water is fine, you don't want the real object and the reflections looking exactly the same.

Yep a hardware brush will make your life a lot easier and you will get a better effect O0

The reflections look good Anita and the water does have a shine on it - it's not dull. Your colours are amazing even if the camera did it!!

I tried starting with mine  :'( it looks so terrible, I had a really bad painting day, it is all one big mass of crap  :tickedoff:  :cursing:  Maybe I should try and do some other type of mountains with foliage or something.
