 :clap: JennyLynn!  The last two were quick for sure!  Time flew by.  :sweat:


I'm going to have to do this lesson over once it comes out again-Dennis had his brush flying around like crazy.  I bet Nolan was pulling his hair out.  :o

I agree Jennylynn, the top right eye is the best one. . . that is a seriously good looking eye!  :clap:
 
Well, Wren (if I may call you that!) you have some pretty nice looking eyes your own self!!! O0
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

 :surrender:  OK, I am going to attempt to do a bit more on these...but I'm going to start from scratch when the replay comes out. I'm sure glad Dennis slows it down for us!  ;D
I'll take a photo of it as it is now once it finishes drying, then another when I've finished committing hare-kare.  :death:
My second eye will definately make a pretty good lizard eye...just add a few scales....        :2funny:
Great going Natalie and Jenny, I was diving for paint tubes, hair dryer, rigger brush...never had so much fun!  :heeha:   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val

Speaking of eyes. . . perhaps I should learn to use mine!
My apologies Natalie. . . there was your name right there at the bottom of your post. . .I'm such a ninny!

Wow you two. You did great on the eyes. I just sat there in awe of how Dennis turned those colors into something so natural looking. And look you can do it, too! Now I hope I can.

 :clap: :clap:  Fantastic job of the eyes Jennylynn and Natalie.  Once again, I missed so much because of my computer "buffering".  Anyway, I enjoyed what I saw and tried to follow along with many gaps but will repeat the lesson when the replay comes out.  Patricia

I came by to see what's showing up from the watercolor class today. 

I'm not a bit surprised to see Jennylynn and Natalie's paintings.  Good job, girls!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I missed the class.   :'(   Another time when I wished I could be in two places at once.

Well it sure looks to me like the "eyes have it!"  Great job, everyone!  Love them all. 


And can't wait for the "lizard" eyes, Val... :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:


AND, Happy Birthday, Lillian!  May you be blessed with everything you need and all that you want.   :bday:

So...maybe a few scales...hint of green?  >:D  Could be! Photo is not very good, couldn't hurt it anyway!  ;D Had to load photo onto my android, transfer to flashdrive, upload from there. While I was mixing my orange, Dennis had his half painted! One replay to go garcon!  ;D
The blob is where some alcohol soaked through the paper.....don't ask!  :o    :2funny:
