It started off so simple, this is going to be a snap. Just a simple little sketch, draw a few lines, eezy-peezy!  O0 Cruising along....  :eek: maybe not.  :think: The nearer I get to finishing, the more complex it seems to become!  :o What to do, what to do?  :think:

I would suggest when doing your first original p&i .... to perhaps choose a subject with a few less curves and angles than I chose!  :D OR, at least finish the course Dennis so kindly provided! What was I thinking?   :doh: No challenge like a self inflicted one eh?!  ;D

I'm 3/4 through so shouldn't be long now she says!  :tongue:    :2funny:   Thank goodness there are no people in this one!  :idea:   NO!!!   :faint:

What was that I once said about 'Lofty ambitions, and dizzying heights'?  Get me down!!!  :parachute:    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Sure Nina... you can laugh!  >:(    :2funny:

  :peace: I am almost there Natalie. It's all Dennis' fault! He sent me off like I got launched from a catapult!!!  :heeha:   Ok, so it's not all Dennis' fault. I'm just a bit excitable when something new comes by.  :whistle:

I promise not to let those suspenders get too tight!  >:D If it's calm tonight I should (hopefully) be able to get it finished.  :sweat:
Cheers, Val

Sorry it's taking so long Natalie. Have just had too much swell coming in lately to do anything.  :( It was reasonably calm around 0100 this morning so got some more done. Just got going nicely and a thunderstorm comes through!  :eek: Not so calm now and we are still bouncing about  :boat:   Should have stopped sooner, but I'm anxious to get it done....should have known better. A few slips and errors, one day I'll learn!  :doh:
Cheers, Val

Val you are a trooper. I forget that you are not on solid ground.

  :surrender:    :flowers:    :peace:    I apologize Dennis...it's really not all your fault. It's that son of yours! The pair of you just provide far too much excitement and opportunities galore!  :heeha: What's a gal to do?  ??? Paint?  :-\ Draw? .........

I LOVE IT ALL !!!  :smitten:    Therein lies the problem. Two cute  :smart: :smart: intelligent, talented, and oft times funny guys teaching all of the things I've always wanted to know.   :thankyou:

To heck with being a painter, Val - you're a poet (and we didn't know it!!)
Cheers,

 :2funny:   I just came across this old thread after posting my onion from the OAL live class.

Take heed all who wish to excel in P&I, do the course first.... you will be so really, really, glad you did.  :whistle:

Seems I forgot to post the picture, so here it is..... warts and all!

Cheers, Val
