Here is my Blue Plate Special from today's class. My grapes look like marbles :2funny:  but other than that I like it.
Thank you Dennis!!

Congratulations to everyone Jennylynn, Val, Doina, Harald--your paintings are wonderful. :clap:

Super job Harald.  :clap: :clap: :clap: I couldn't even attempt the shadows/shadings... just kept slapping on colours!  :D

Well done Carol.  :clap: :clap: :clap: If anyone asks about the hole in my bunch of grapes, I'm just going to tell them I ate it...  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

This is my paint a long - nothing seemed to go right for me, spilled paint all over myself and surrounding area, cauliflowers galore etc. etc. but nevertheless, I enjoyed the lesson, thank you Dennis.  Once again, I am open to comments and criticisms.  Many thanks,  Patricia

Great Patricia, I love the pineapple and the pear.  :clap: :clap: Maybe a line or two into banana peels. They don't get mushy evenly. The rest is great  :flowers: By the way can I borrow your camera? I dont see the cauliflowers! ;D Doina

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Wow, I was shocked to see so many gorgeous paintings.  Congratulations to you all.
 
Jennylynn, your colours are vibrant.
 
Val, I loved the leaves on your pineapple.
 
Lovely painting Doina.
 
Carol a super painting.
 
Harald an excellent painting too.  Your shadows were exceptional.
 
 :thankyou:  Doina for your comments.  Much appreciated and sure, you can borrow my camera anytime.  I  poured so much water on the background to try and get rid of the cauliflowers/streaks etc and finally thought I would just leave it.  I need much more practice in backgrounds (and everything else) for mine never seem to come out smooth.

Patricia,

You are amazing.  You did two versions of the still life.  Double amazing.

Both are lovely.

I like apples better than oranges, anyway.

Now, ditto to Carol.  Another great still life.

You all have to do a pencil one, too, to catch up to Patricia.

I'll need to do both, since all I did was watch!

Superb job everyone!   :clap: :clap: :clap: Y'all are so good at these paint alongs!  :not_worthy:  Actually, I was going to try (emphasis on *try*) to paint along with Dennis on this one, but I couldn't get in until almost halfway through the lesson.  Guess I'm gonna have to catch up on all these replays!  :2funny: 

Cheers,
Jani

 :thankyou:  Mea for your lovely comments and I can't wait to see yours done in oil.  How did you enjoy watching the live class?  Not easy to paint along especially for me as I get lost so easily.  Nevertheless, it is good for one doesn't have time to think.  I knocked paint off my table which splattered all over my capris and have stained them. I have tried everything to get the paint out with no success.  So beware of W/N paint ladies, if you get it on your clothes, that's it, you can't get it out.


Jani, don't you just hate it when you can't log onto the Paint Basket?  I tried to log onto the Paint Basket for hours this morning and I kept getting the message that it was unable to connect. However, Dennis told us that they had experienced terrible thunder storms and the lightening had caused the problem and downed the lines etc. Anyway, the replay will be up and running soon and you can follow at your leisure.

Patricia,

It was fun to watch your still life class.  But, I can see that if you aren't super prepared with everything at hand, it would be hard keeping up with Dennis.  He makes it look so easy, but I'm sure that only comes with years (and years) of practice.

I'm glad I did it.  It was a good experience.  I haven't completely ruled out watercolor yet, though.

Right now I am working on a painting of the church on Kalaupapa, Molokai, where Fr. (now Saint) Damien cared for those with Hansen's Disease.  It's a gift for a friend who is a Franciscan nun and visited Kalaupapa with me a few years ago.  It's coming along pretty well.  Should have it to show by mid-week.

aloha

When I see just the top of all those pineapples on my screen, in the gallery, I have to think of Bert (Sesame street).  :2funny:

Well done everyone!

Mea, I am so pleased that you enjoyed watching the live class.  It is fun and you are right, you have to be prepared with everything at hand otherwise you won't keep up.  Before I did watercolours my heart was set on oils but it wasn't to be and I was literally thrown into watercolour but I am not disappointed at all, in fact, I am loving every minute of my journey.  Give it a try, you may find you love it too.


Please post your Church painting for us to have a look at.  What a lovely gift for your friend who is a nun.  Bless  you for that.

Mea, I do my best to have everything I think I'll need for each class....but doesn't always work out that way  :D
Even when I do have everything possible...still can't hold court with Dennis  ;D even on his s-l-o-w days!  :2funny:
Just can't mix that fast  :run: :2funny:
Cheers, Val
