In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future. Thanks.

Dennis;
Would it be possible to put the picture in as well as the template? I don't know about the others, but I can't manage to finish a paint along, but would like to try to see if I can come up with "close colors" and shadows that you will have on lesson day. I thoroughly enjoy watching you on Sunday, and to wait til Wed or Thurs. for the replay, my 'remembery' isn't to good! ;D
Just a thought.
Thanks, Dennis, for all the knowledge and friendship you share.

JL.. Great job.. Yours looks a whole lot more together than mine... BUT I DID IT, too ! :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:


 I've Got to watch how much water I use and and not commit quite so early Over did the left hand mountain top and could not come up with a way to salvage it. the bottom was a case of way too much water. still hard to judge might be e-z er with tubes? rather than pans? 

Suggestions please!!!

My paint along too. I like the strength of your mountains Brian and I really like the variation in your skyline jennylynne.  Dennis will tell you how to soften the hard lines of shadow on one side to fade them away if you are worried about them.

Here is my paintalong.  It was fun as usual.  I like all the rest that have posted so far.  We are a growing group.  Shh...don't let the rest of them know how much fun it is to paintalong...and bonus you don't feel overwhelmed with the growing list of paintings you have to do.

I made a few changes but they are a bit timid! darkened the mountaints on the right added some trees at the base - trying for distance and something to break the tree lineup more.
I love thebrilliance of colour in yours Gail.

Gail, always a pleasure to see your paintings.  Nice job painting with Dennis today.   :clap: :clap: :clap:


I had my paper prepared and planned to try my first paint along today, but a storm was threatening so I bailed out in fear I would have to turn my computer off.  As it turned out, the storm went mostly around us.

Maybe next time.
