This is my rendition, not as neat as I would have liked it to be as I am 'background' challenged for sure. Now to go back and have a look at all the others who have submitted.    Patricia

It was interesting today. We have had no power for a week after a once in forty year storm. When we got it back i found my computer had no sound so I have just been watching not listening but i tried to paint along anyway - a bit behind because i spent so long trying to get sound. My paper has buckled but i think I can smooth it out. Some details still to do and i will have to invent the second dragonfly or wait for the replay.
Jennylynn, Patricia and Doina - your dragonflies are all pretty - and i love the different colourings.

You folks are popping out dragonflies really fast - nice work from you all - Karen, Harold, Doina, Patricia to add to the gallery that Jennylynn and Carol started.

I tend to be a clumsy artist, so truly admire those who paint such tiny objects.

Looks like it was a fun class today.  Dennis, you taught them well.

SueRai,

Don't worry about the wrinkles, everyone is going to be looking at your beautiful ring.  Was it custom made for you?

How unique!!

Patricia, look at those eyes!  Even "buggy" eyes look good under your hands!  Isn't he pretty?  Good job!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Karen, lovely background.  I like the green!  Never mind the buckling; it will all "iron" out.   :congrats: on a job well done!

Harald, as always, your rendition is beautiful.  I love all the detail you put into your paintings--and you did this at the same pace as Dennis!  Entirely impressive!!  Keep 'em coming, buddy!   :yippee:
Cheers,
Jani

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Thank you Doina, Mea and Jani for your comments on my paint a long.  Jani, I got a bit lost around the eye section ... doesn't take much for me to get lost these days but thank you for your always sweet and uplifting comments.


Jennylynn, after posting my effort last night, I went back and had a look at everyone's painting and I especially looked at your background and thought that it was superb. So I found it interesting that you should comment on using a size 20 brush which I will try next time.  Thanks for the help Jennylynn.  This is what I love most about this forum, we nurture and help each other to grow. Bless you all for having such kind hearts.

   not too happy with this one, everything seemed to go wrong when I started his head lol but finished it in a fashion  :2funny:

His head AND rest of him sure looks great to me.  All I see there and my memory may be off too are the little dabs of yellow under his eyes and "mouth" area?  If I'd never seen Dennis do it though, I'd have just said perfect!  And this as a paint along?  Wow, Jennylynn...I was THERE and couldn't do it!   :clap: :clap: :clap:
