Just finished Waterfalls Part 2 - enjoyed learning how to leave in the white without the masking fluid. This waterfall reminds me of some we saw in the Dominican Republic last summer...which are much easier to photograph vs painting!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon--Very beautiful painting.  You are just going gangbusters on these lessons.  I am learning so much just watching you paint each one.  Impressive :flowers:

Thanks Dennis...I really love the ability to stop, rewind, and rewatch these lessons at my own pace - really helps me a lot with the technique!

Lynn - I'm getting very close to securing a new job so am trying desperately to paint as much as I can while I have the time before going back to work...when that happens the "gangbuster" rate will slow to a trickle, trust me!

Thanks, Mea - I'm having such fun learning to paint...
Cheers,
Sharon

Here is my effort of painting waterfalls.  I really struggled with the rocks, I think I need more practice.  As always any comments and suggestions will be gratefully received.

This one is next up for me Penny. Hope I do as well as you here. I agree, the rocks can be a real challenge but I think you've done quite well with them.  Good job.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

You've done really well with this Penny! The waterfall series was one of the most challenging for me so I admire your painting, well done  :clap: :clap: :clap:
 
And Sharon, super nice job!
