Oh, I am so impressed. You are all going to be ready for the full portrait when it comes along. If I would just pull myself away from the drawing table long enough, I could actually join you. I am so proud of everyone so far. :yippee:

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:   Geez, Natalie, Nina, Jennylynn and Lynnp, you girls did soooo well!! Congratulations to you all.  I wish I could have joined in but will post mine after I watch the replay.


Oh! Val, I was just so frustrated for I was all set up waiting for the lesson to begin ... I could have cried ... but then I have the replay to fall back on so that settled me down.  I was however, very disappointed to say the least.  Oh! Well, its not the end of the world, I will survive!!!  The buffering is just darned annoying.

Patricia--The buffering is so prevalent for me each time.  I used to get so annoyed.  I now plan for it.  I usually print another reference pic that is in the realm of the lesson and revert to that instead of staying frustrated.  That is what I had to do today.  I am starting to wonder if I should skip the live classes. So fortunate to have the replays!!!  Sorry it happened to you.

Lynnp, it would seem that I am not alone in my frustrations and I am sorry for you having to suffer the frustrations too.  Anyway, I have just had an email to say that the replay is available already    :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: but now I don't have much time today as I have grandchildren to take care of and tomorrow I am going across the River to the States to do some shopping but then there is Wednesday!!!!    What is so annoying is that I get all set up and ready to go and then have to sit and look at a screen that doesn't move for more than 20 minutes at a time, no matter what I do.  I tried to reload but to no avail.  Anyway, I hope to get the problem sorted out today as my husband is calling our Service Provider.  The problem is that if we purchase just the replays it is $14 as opposed to $9 so I will just stick with the lessons even though I can't see them at the appropriate time.  I hope that you can get yours sorted out too.  It is so disappointing I know.  Take care, Patricia

Well I have tried, By the way Denis I enjoyed the lesson and learned a lot, I just could not do your teaching justice.
Try not to  :2funny: too much.

A BIG  :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  to everybody. I think we all did good job considering some of us have never done this. Give yourselves a pat on the back.  :yippee: :yippee: :hug:

Bill, I think you've done a great job with this.  :clap:   :clap:   :clap:  You've got your shadow, midtone, and highlight colours all in. Done well with getting some texture and dimension in there to boot. All she needs is a good brushout and she'll be gorgeous!  O0

Cheers, Val

I am extremely happy with the results of ALL the paintalongs :clap: :clap: :clap: Natalie, Nina, Jenny, Lynn (plus the bun), it was not an easy subject and you all excelled. O0
Bill, you have done the teaching justice -    why?:
1.  Taking action
2.  Doing your best
3.  All this leads to improvement.
