Amazing effort Val - I hope you made it. I must have booked too late. I can't get on today so I'll just have to do the replay later. Enjoy the class everybody and I'll look forward to the paintalongs!

Well Karen, you're not alone. My computer was out after I installed Internet Explorer 10. I do not know what I've done, what I checked or what I reset, my computer works for the last 5 minutes. I am amazed of how attached we all are to this computer! Is looks just few years ago, that when I received at work a computer I told my boss to give to someone else. Did not work! Now if I don't have it one day, is panic time  :tickedoff:  :fight:   >:(  :(  :'( Doina

Hey!  Jennylynn, that's fantastic!  Very well done indeed!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Val, your bushes are nothing to be ashamed of.  They look beautiful.  O0 You're off to a good start.   Enjoy the time with your mom.

Brian, you have come along in leaps and bounds.  You really amaze me!  Nice work! I enjoy seeing the progress you're making.  Keep it up!   :flowers:

Jennylynn you did do a masterful job of this. The sunsetish, warm coloring in the tree and repeated in the road is very pretty.
Val what you have finished is wonderful. The negative space work in the bottom of your hedge is really effective.
No selling yourself short Brian. Your road with its ruts looks so natural, and the figure is to die for. Well done!

Wow....you did a banner job, Jenn, Bri .....spectacular.  Val, you are off to a great start. I'm looking forward the finished pic.
You guys did great keeping up!
I came to screeching halt when I heard 'wet in wet'!!  My paper dries out too quickly. When I compensate for it, I get Q C's speciality .  I'll just poke along at my speed.
Dennis will be Proud!!!!!

3rd time i have attempted to reply.

so quickly!!!    I very much like the leaves at the top of the tree they give weight and mass to the tree in a very nice way. and the trees in the distance are super. the lights and darks + the toneal values between the grouping is super .
