Oh my word!  I can't believe my eyes!  You guys are GOOD!!!  I'm  :envy:

You must have had a great class.  Dennis is such a good teacher and you are good students.  He must be so proud.

Sorry I couldn't be in the class.   :'(   However, I did have a great weekend.   :yippee:

I'm so happy for you all.  Dennis is making real ARTISTS out of you.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank heavens I have the replays!

Hey Brian!  You posted at the same time as I did.  Good job on the paint along!   :smitten:

Beautiful paintings from Val, Jenny, Natalie, Brian and Patricia! They are all good enough to be in a virtual gallery. Hey, I guess we are!!! And to all of you  :thankyou: for the great words of encouragement. Onward with brush in hand!

Val very convincing portrait -, Jenny, Natalie, Carol Brian and Patricia! - Great efforts - there is a likeness in all todays ones. Patricia I think it's easier to paint when you are not trying to find a colour Dennis has surprised you with and to keep up with him, but painting along is great at helping me stop fussing and overpainting.  I didn't quite keep up and rushed too much but it's a great exercise trying! (I painted along but had to leave for work before i posted.)

 :thankyou:  Brian for your lovely comments.  Yes, I also prefer my first attempt to my class portrait only because I am always rushed to try and keep up which gets my nerves on edge but then it is a good thing and a good exercise which I enjoy.


 :thankyou: Lillian, I am sorry that you missed the class yesterday for it was fun as always. However, I was so pleased to hear that you had a good weekend.


 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Sarah and Carol for your lovely comments too.  I think we are all doing better than expected but then as I always say "credit must go to our wonderful tutors".


 :thankyou:  Karen for your lovely comments too and yes you are right, painting along is hard but a great exercise. As you can see by my before and after efforts, the colours I used are totally different and it was nice to see how they differed. I love to learn from the Masters.  Your painting was excellent too.  You did the little girl's hair perfectly.  I just so enjoy looking at them all as we all see things differently but this time, the likeness in all of the paintings is more prevalent I thought.
