I'm not finished...I'm like the white rabbit today-I'm running late!  This is what I've done so far-left bank is giving me fits.

Looking good so far, Natalie.  Great work on the arch and railing.

While I love the blue hue, is it too blue?

Great work so far, Natalie :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:   Just add some of the same leaf texture as you see on the right bank.

Started late! Had problems with the web site lol  but all is well in the world.  This is the fastest painting I have ever done.  Natalie I don't know how you do it.

Lisa, another great bridge painting :clap: :clap: :clap:
More than often painting too slow is a hindrance. Why? It is an absolute recipe for FIDDLING :2funny:
Look how fast those who painted along with me during the live classes improved - no time to fiddle.
It also takes you away from just being a "copy artist" to being you, and nobody else.  O0

I did find my self watching you less and relying on what you have taught me to keep up.  But I have to tell you my workspace looked like a typhon had gone through, pencils flying through the air in search of the right colors  :2funny:
Thank you for another wonderful class.

 Lisa,

Your bridge painting is quite good.  Tree to the right and behind the bridge are really nice.

It looks like a challenging picture but both you and Natalie seemed to catch on quickly.

You both did a great job on your pictures.
Congrats.

 :thankyou:Mea for your kind comments.  I think that painting fast may have helped me make the marks for my trees more random.

 :thankyou:Retta,  i agree you need a lot of steam.  I really don't know how Natalie does it each class.  I had to send my husband out to dinner with his mom so that I could get through it.  Can't wait to see yours!

Nice painting Natalie and Lisa  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lisa the left bush close to the base of the bridge is to square, i would round it a bit. Hope this helps.
