This came out a lot darker than I wanted but with practice I will get the water and the tone better.

Zilpa I am just beginning to adjust how much color I put in while watching Dennis live. I think the camera makes it a little deceiving. He seems to be putting in so much color , but I think it might be more watery wash than I am perceiving. Just watch. Next I'll start going way too light! The elements and overall effect of your portrait are just fine! It looks quite like the guy!

 :clap: :clap:  Good Zilpa and Bill. 
 
Sarah, I think you are right in what you say about the camera.  Dennis' colours look so much darker than mine when following along and yet his resulting painting is not so.  I think we should just go with our colours appearing to be that much lighter than what is portrayed on the video otherwise we sit with the problem of our paintings being too dark.  Just my thought.  Patricia

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Nina well done.
Sarah I agree. I am thinking if I could take all the bits I really like about everybody's portrait painting and apply it to a new one, it would be a masterpiece. I think everyone has done a really great job.
I think my main problem is adjusting from letting the watercolour do it's own thing ( like in skies) to controlling it as in portraits.

Zilpa, Bill and Nina really good job.  Pegi--for some reason I can't see yours on the Forum, it just has that little brown square.  That is interesting about the darkness of paint.  I suppose I have always just used the reference pic he gives us.

Lynnp, I also got that brown square when trying to view Pegi's painting so I went to her gallery and had a look at it.  Patricia

Duh!! I should have known to go to the gallery Pegi.  What a fine, fine portrait.  Love your vibrant colors and a great likeness.
