Thank you so much Val, Lillian Lynne, and Mary. Musika, I have taken old man mountain's face off - not sure what's there now instead! Thank you Nolan- it's those things I forget that make a big difference - I was too busy thinking about whether to add the tree or not to notice. I have added shadows to the sheep now - should i make the fence wire more noticeable? What would happen if i used a permanent ink pen for the wire - I don't think i can get such a fine line with a brush - does it mess with the acrylic paint or not work when I put a final varnish on?

no rather leave the fence wire out than make it too thick, especially at the distance yours are into the scene, you will not see them in real like.

I wouldn't use a regular pen on the paint. You do however get acrylic based pens especially for use on acrylic paintings.

I'm glad I came across this one today. Mary, it's been very interesting to read the feedback you received for your painting. I've looked a few times and there's something about it that I can't express yet. I think it has a wonderful sense of freedom and playfullness in the scene. It's somehow hints at a style you may develop that is unique.
I love  it by the way and, think you should be proud of your work. I can't wait to see more.  :painting:
Well done  :clap: :clap:

Tony!  Oh my gosh...I don't even know what to say except I'm very touched by your words.  You know, it's so funny - I don't see "style" and whatever it is I do even in the same sentence yet this has been cropping up more and more.  I think I know nothing about art appreciation/assessment except for a sense of knowing whether I like what I see and using that as my criterion; so, I'm honestly baffled when that word is applied to anything I'm doing here.  I really have no consciousness of anything other than just trying to follow where our master teachers are leading us so it gives me pause when someone sees a style because I'm mystified as to how that might relate to me.  All I know is that I LOVE doing this having come from a zero background of all things drawing and painting and for the most part, find mostly humor in what I'm doing. I far more appreciate looking at what everyone else is doing and I'm awed with the beauty I see everyone else creating.  PB provides so much more than art lessons - it's opened up so many new things that it would be almost impossible for me to list.  I am humbled and very grateful for your take on it because these are the things I think about in the wee hours of the morning when frustration reigns.  Thank you so much.   :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

C.!  Thank you so much!  But does this now mean I can't say when they ask that C. did it???   :2funny: :2funny:

Mary, Mary, Mary: What in the world is the matter with your painting? I looked, and looked. I even cleaned my glasses,  :2funny: and still can't see what you are talking about. Here is my suggestion. Put a frame on it, and either keep it or sell it. I like it.  O0 :1hug: :clap:

 :2funny: Nina!  You can't see what I'm talking about because I don't KNOW what I'm talking about!  :2funny:  I've retitled it:  "Three Quilts by the Riverside!" - too bad I can't sew because I'd be whipping up a few of them right now because they're not very warm to lie under!  I did hang it...it's looks GREAT in my closet!  Thank you, Nina! :1hug: :flowers: :1hug:
