Love the warm, glowing tones.

Hard to tell, though, if the steps descend to sand or very shallow water.  Which?

Regardless, it is lovely.  Love the shapes of your stones.  That's always a big challenge for me.

Two great Paint-a-longs :clap: :clap: :clap: each with their own character O0

Remember that those taking part in the paint-a-long don't know what I will be doing with the template. They don't know what colours I will be using. I know exactly what I will be doing so I have the edge on them. Another thing is that they have to very quickly make decisions as they follow me - not an easy thing to do. Worst of all is that they have to watch me and at the same time do their own painting - not an easy feat.

Can you see why I have great respect for all who do the paint-a-longs? Can I challenge more of you to be brave enough as well?

I know this is a very old posting... but it got me thinking.

Pushing oneself to do this would be most difficult,  but I think it may be most valuable leaning experience.  Whatever the painting outcome is, it would teach much.

I will do this... even if I don't post the result.  Thanks Dennis ☺
Cheers, Annie

 :heeha: Wow, this is great Fi !!! Love the colourings. Very good detailing.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm still struggling along on my pastel painting. Lloyd said I should get a set of pastel sticks since the pans are causing me so much grief! I think he's worried the neighbours about think I should be locked up with all the talking I do to myself.... and Dennis, and you, and a few other non present entities!   :2funny:

Can't wait to get started on our land travels... and my search for stick pastels!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val
