Crumbs, I thought that I had booked this lesson when I did my block booking.  Oh! Well, I will enjoy seeing all your paintings.  Dennis, have a wonderful, safe holiday, I do believe S.A. has changed a lot, waiting to hear from a friend who has just arrived back from holidaying there and she said there are so many changes which she will tell us about when she catches up with her sleep. I guess it is no longer the country we grew up in.  Nevertheless, enjoy the time with your family/friends and we look forward to resuming lessons after your holiday.  God's blessings.  Patricia

Beautiful all 3 of them. :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  O0  O0  O0 !!!! I decided few weeks ago, that I will watch the class, and then paint with replay. I can't keep up with Dennis. This way I know what to expect. Thank you Dennis for a great class. Wish you a happy hollyday, and a safe return. Doina

I agree with Val. You all did admirably. And there is something unique in each one. This was not easy. I fell behind during window construction. There are a lot of people in Venice with no view of the canal right now. :blush:  But I'm having a hot cup of chai then go back to the finishing touches. Oof! This was a tough one. Congratulations on not only keeping up but doing wonderful paintings. Later. Promise. C'mon Val. We can still pull this one off!

Nice gondolas and it's amazing how different all the paintings are Bhavna, Lynne and jenny. I realised i should have had the photo to look at when it was too late but here is my version.

They are wonderful!!  You girls did a real bang-up job.  Thanks for sharing, and I'm honored to be in the class with these awesome artists.

And here is mine. Oof. Adjusted the photo to get some of the orangey back into the buildings, and I see I've lost my nice greeny water. Oh well. Imagine some nice greeny water and a blue sky and its close. I have never done anything this intricate. Now that I kind of understand what is where it would be good to do it again. I like your approach, Dennis with a casual interpretation of buildings and bridge, etc.  Thank you for the lesson on a blustery wet afternoon. Oops, forgot the painting.
