Hi I really like the longer version. I missed the previous tutorials and had trouble getting started (keep falling off line) on the tulip session so missed out on some valuable first sessions but decided to just go with it. Quickly started painting without a preliminary sketch and just went with the flow and adlibbed straight onto the canvas with brush. Had fun but will have to reposition my leaves as did not know about the masking tape and it threw me when you lifted it off ... I had an aha moment. I'm looking forward to the next session and I am very impressed with you giving so much of your time to share your painting prowess. regards Lyn

Couldn't remember who I've already welcomed so I just thought an extra couple wouldn't hurt.  :whistle:

Hello,
Thank you for the opportunity to vote on this issue.  I like the first version and to see not only the strokes but the brushes he is using.  I am timid with painting and this will help me so much.
You both are very interesting and make your time so helpful for me. You have inspired me to paint and paint some more. :painting: :painting: :painting:

I'm so very glad that the Minimal Editing is winning out. I need all the fine details I can get on how to paint.  :yippee:

 :sweat: I'm so glad to hear that....I was getting worried... ::) not really, I figured if the short version won out I'd just have to learn to speed paint  :whistle:

That's funny, Val.  :2funny: But, if you want to speed paint, try acrylics.  O0
