Jennylynn, you amaze me as usual!  You're always the first one here with a paint along. 
Nice painting, too!   :clap: :clap: :clap:


 :'(   I sent a message to my daughter re not being able to get in on the class as I didn't have the flash player on my new laptop. 
She called me back from work on her break and said she would help me download it tomorrow.   :yippee:


...a little too late for the class but now I can stop crying.  :'( ...anyone got a hanky?

Pretty Jennylynn!!, great job.
Mine turned into a semi-abstract ??? . Oh well, I was just glad I could keep up with Dennis without a hair dryer ;D . This is watercolour only .....

Semi abstract?  Well maybe just on the right side but that's ok.  It allows those beautiful rocky steps to be the focal point.  I really like how the light shines on them.  Well done!   :clap: :clap: :clap:


Your painting has a dreamy atmosphere.   :smitten:
