 :eek:    ....    :think:     ....    WOWZERS!     :not_worthy:

Brilliant work, every one. So sad I missed this one. Will have to get cracking on that monstrocity of mine and get it posted. Can't wait to have a go ... must be strong ... finish the boat on beach.  ;D
Cheers, Val

Wow, great painting everyone.

What would that man say, if he saw all those beautiful paintings, made from the photo Dennis made...

Finally finished the "Old Man!" Had visitors and pc problems during the paint-a-long, so had the challenge of mixing  the same colors later in the week so I could finish him.  Learned a lot.   I so enjoyed painting him.  My first w/c portrait.  I want to do more.
