Dear Dennis;
I thought I should let you know I received the normal 48 hour notice but,  was unable to access the
Passion Fruit Flower template.  I tried the usual place on  PB under live watercolour lesson
 no.79, to no avail.    I`ll check again tomorrow as its 1:25 am Saturday morning here and time to hit
the sack.

Dear Maryna;
Thank you, for the Passion Fruit Flower template, for some reason the Internet address sent to me by
 
PB won't turn blue to let me access it.  Also, the address was missing from the usual place under Watercolour live classes.  I appreciate your help now I am ready for tomorrow.  :thankyou:
May lynn

What needs to be masked? I'm a bit slow on that and would like to get a head start...
No one knows?  OK, I'll just mask everything...

You did great keeping up and looks better than my cauliflower!  ;D   Actually the center of my flower looks kind of like a fuzzy pillbox hat!  :2funny: I'll leave that to show just for giggles!

Always an adventure! You came through just fine Jenny, I'll see what I can do to sort this out and post it tomorrow.

Good on you girl!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Not as easy as it looked huh? Dennis is getting sneaky slipping these in.  :sneaky:
Cheers, Val

Nicely done Doina! No one would ever guess you'd run short on the background colour...good recovery there.  O0 The main leaves look excellent, flower looks great. Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :oops: My background got messed up.
I will mask the whole flower the next time around because my stamens and pistils look like a monkey face or something.  I am not steady-handed as Dennis and had to go over a lot of the flower after the background. Oh well, I at least sat still for 2 hours with the heating pad so it made my back feel better.

That is a cool background! Reminds me of a 'space odessey' kind of thing. The flower really pops out of it! I like it.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

Jennylynn, your painting is good as they always are.  You nailed the flower for sure.


Doina, an excellent job too.  I see a little bird in the top left hand side of your painting. 


Carol, a lovely job too and it is amazing what a difference a background makes to a painting.  I guess, I notice these things for I am "background challenged".


Anyway, you all did a banner job.  Can't wait for the replay to give it a try.  Patricia
