In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these  to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future.  Thanks

Template:  None for this class - freehand drawing.  I will be using the 300 gsm watercolour paper. Have a cup of water and a medium sized paint brush handy for this lesson.

Thanks JennyLynn-class was an adventure today!  Can't wait to see yours.
Jill-yours looks great, I wish I would have kept that sunny patch on mine-it really makes a difference.

It was well worth the struggle to get in. Pastels just might still stand a chance with me!  ;D

Wow... well done Natalie!  :heeha:   I'm going to have a go with my limited colours so no guarantees on this one...could get a bit garish!  :eek: We'll see.   ::)

Wow, this was such an interesting class when things settled down.  Poor Nolan, I felt so bad for you, your nerves must have been finished ... just one of those things that happen occasionally.  Nevertheless, the lesson was fantastic, thank you Dennis.
 
Here is my paint a long ... my tree needs some attention for sure.  No time to think about it.   Patricia

Nothing like a bit of panic and mayhem to keep me on my toes eh ;D

I have added the raw replay to your Unlocked classes list - forward to around 25 minutes in to get to the start of the class

Natalie!  Well done.  I like the darker colors.  I had difficulty with the small details today and always the frustration of working with a small pallet.  I'm putting my order in with Santa now!  A large set of pastels with all the values of the different colors. One can dream!

 :thankyou: Val.

Well done Patricia.  My trees need work too.  Good job on the figures.  I think I might just do this one again and take a little more time.

Please note that we have changed the name of the class to Figures in Pastel from Wood Carriers as we felt that this class name would be more meaningful

  :thankyou: Thank you Jill. I was thinking of re-doing the lesson too for I used pastel paper instead of watercolour duh  :idiot2: !!   Also, I didn't notice until I had uploaded the painting onto the forum that I cut half of it off.  Geez, I tell you!
 
 :thankyou:   Nolan for all you do and did to get things back on track.  Never worry for we always have the replays.  Gosh, I could feel your nerves on edge on this side of the world and in my mind I was saying "calm down Nolan, calm down Nolan".  Anyway, as I said, you handled it superbly.   :clap: :clap: :clap:
