I do not see any problems up to now Val  ;) Well I was able to see on my tablet the last 20 minutes. I found the problem, it is as Nolan said: I am missing Adobe flash 9. Problem is that I can't download. I am trying now to look at the problem without pressure. If I can't, tomorrow my computer goes to the IT guru. Hope to have it fix for the replay. Good luck, you're on the right path  :gl2: I like it. I have not seen cauliflowers!!  :yippee:  :yippee: Doina

Good job on the paint along, Jennylynn.   O0   This was a hard one!!!  Will you try another?
 
Sorry you couldn't stay with us, Doina.  I hope the guru can get you ready for the next class.   :1hug:

Thanks guys, and thanks for the help...otherwise I wouldn't have gotten this far.  :hug:

The colours are actually *brighter* than they show here. Will have to lift some out, which in my case is easier than putting them in!  ;D

Jenny, amazing how well yu keep up and still come out with a painting that looks like the subject! Especially now we are getting a lot more detail involved. Excellent job.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

What an enjoyable class, don't you think?!  I may be biased, but I think Dennis's stag was prettier than the real thing! :)
I couldn't paint along, so I just watched and took it all in.  It was such a difficult subject, well, at least for me.  That's why I am AMAZED at both Val and Jenny Lynn for their paintings!!  Wonderful job, Jenny Lynn!  :clap: :clap: :clap: And Val, you know you will create a masterpiece!  :painting:

Hugs,
Jani
Cheers,
Jani

Great job, you two!  Jenny, I am just amazed at your paintings.  You do so well and to keep up with Dennis.....WhoooHoooo!  Good job.


Val, you have set it up for a super finish. Looks great. I'm so excited for you all that paint along. It's wonderful.




I'm just not set up for 'paint along'. Maybe one day when I can find enough plug-ins!!  LOLOL

Val, you have progressed wonderfully compared to previous paint-a-longs :clap: :clap: :clap: What you have done so far is excellent. Can't wait to see the finished painting O0

Jennylynn, you did well with the paint-a-long  :clap: :clap: :clap: The antlers are a bit too dark - lift out some of the colour. Watch out for the trees on the hillside - they are too organized - group them randomly in "families"

Dennis....I think I'm finally getting the hang of this!  :heeha:   He still needs a few touchups, darken the antlers, lighten the belly.... and you won't believe this... but I rather like the outcome of this one!  ;D I've taken two photos, neither one is as nice as the painting. (Never thought I'd say that!  :faint:   Without further ado.......   :eyesclosed:

                                     
Cheers, Val

Val and Jennylynn,

Great job on your stately stags.  Animals seem quite challenging.  I admire you for going for it.
