Tina, a warm  :welcome: to Paintbasket. 

Don't worry about your English, you do very well.

It's amazing how all the different colours still work to represent the mountains!
Natalie, I like the boldness of your shadows especially and Nina your mountains and sky look so real and natural!

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.

Yeesss, that's a good idea :clap:. This was the first life course I followed and I had no idea how the painting would look like in the end. I didn't paint along, because there were so many other things to absorp. But even in the replay I had problems in judging if my colour mix had the right strength or lightnes. So if I knew in advance what the picture should look like it would be a lot easier. At least I hope so. Otherwise the lesson was great. Thanks for the course  :D

Hi Tina,
Don't be so hard on yourself. I think what may be bothering you is the purple, Just try to tone it down a little. Some blue with burnt sienna might work. Your trees have some nice colors, but they are the same. Make some of them higher, and  some darker colors might help. besides it was about painting mountains, and you did that. Over all you did a fine job. Keep it up.  O0
