So pleased to hear that you are able to do the "shuffle" Dennis and we have missed you too.  I may not be able to  attend class and may even get a bit behind as this coming week promises to be busy for me.  I will be going to assist an elderly family member who has gone blind. However, I will catch up with the replay.  Enjoy the lesson everyone.  Patricia

 :thankyou: Dennis,

I guess the Gesso brushes look and feel pretty much like a kitchen pastry brush, so I guess that will have to do.

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Harald!   :congrats:   Well done!  Just a couple of things -- your man in the middle with the blue shirt has no head.
Also, the large, dark rock on the right could be lightened a bit and not quite so solid.  That's the way I see it anyway.
Other than that, you've done an awesome job.   :clap: :clap:

 :2funny: Lillian, does anyone really need a head??
 
Nice job Harald, love the bright, crispness to your painting. Here's my "paint along"/tag along
 
 
Darkened up the near bushes per Dennis' suggestion  :)

Uh oh, my guy looks like he doesn't have a head either. He does actually have a yellow hat though! ;D
Harald, maybe your hat's just not showing up in the pic? ;)

My first live PB lesson, except I didn't come prepared.  But, I will make up for that.  Welcome back Dennis!  Wishing you speedy healing, hoping the "hitch in your get-along" gets all better.  By the way, good one Harald! :painting:

Way to go, Denise and Harald! So interesting to see the variety in your paintings, from one lesson.

I look forward to the replay. Can't do live classes very well since my PC is at the opposite end of the house from my painting area.

Harald, an excellent paint-a-long indeed :clap: :clap: :clap: Just soften the large rock on the right to match the colours of the rocks on the left of the painting O0

Denise, also a good paint-a-long :clap: :clap: :clap: I really love your sky :clap: Darken up the main trees on the near cliff to add the proper contrast O0

Lillian, does anyone really need a head??
  Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I sure need one!   ;D
I received an email from a friend recently.  Maybe you've heard this one before, but here goes --
I finally discovered what's wrong with my brain:
On the left side there's nothing right and on the right side there's nothing left.   :D

A hake brush is on my wish list, Harald.   O0
