Dear Dennis;

I just spotted a new Acrylic lesson today scheduled for tomorrow. 
It seems such short notice, we usually have a week or so to get onboard
with a new offering on PB.   :confused:

Dear Maryna;

No not at all!!!! I was thinking that many others would
not be aware of this one and therefore, miss out on the discounted rate.

I don't belong to any  clubs as I like to  float around and
try many different classes while keeping my cost in check.

I am delighted that I caught this one in time.

May Lynn, The Watercolour, Pastel and Pen and Ink are under my control. The Oils, Acrylic and Pencil belong to Nolan and he has a different system of notification than what I use even though I did this one in acrylics.

Well, I missed the fly fisherman. Darn it.  Didn't see it there!  Saw the other lessons, but I'm already signed up for them.  Oh well...

Is that because you just buy classes on a "That looks good" classes?  I am in the acrylics club so they are just open for me but I do have a couple of pet hates.

1.  We don't get enough time to prepare eg. Print and do any masking work that needs to be done before a live class

2. Not knowing what paint is being used so if I don't have it , I have to wait until I do so makes "paint along" hard

I really enjoy in the live classes doing paint along as it improves my speed and also doesn't give me time to overthink it, I just do it LOL I want to do some plein air work and with acrylics you have to be fast  :2funny:

At the moment because we are only getting recorded classes I guess it's not that big a deal.....but it does matter for the live classes.

I may be the only one who's a bit fussy about having everything just do before I paint.

Having said that I love this class and it's exactly what I need right this moment as I am currently doing a waterwheel with a downstream view (from a black and white photo) and the water here is exactly the colours I had in my head.....I can't wait to start it tomorrow (or today as it's 12:15am here LOL)

Just finished watching this class. Beautiful painting Dennis!  :smitten:  I can't wait to get started on it!
Anna did a great job with the camera.  O0
I also appreciated seeing how to break the tips off of the knife.

Gosh What a marathon effort......3 solid days of painting so Dennis I don't know if you stopped the camera for a break or ate or had a coffee but you seemed to just go on and on like an everready bunny.  So, thank you very much for your meticulous attention to details that never flagged. :thankyou: I've finally finished it after doing the water 5 times and other bits and not getting the bank right but fixing it my own way LOL

It's now midnight here so I have just about burnt the midnight oil!  :2funny:

I will post my end result tomorrow when I have natural light....I took a photo of it but it's too blurry and flash required which I think doesn't take a proper photo..


See you all tomorrow!

PS.....Dennis....I was a wuss and didn't do the scratch back....I loved what I painted on the trees and didn't want to risk screwing it up so I painting the rod and line instead  :2funny:

This was a lot of hard work!  Photo doesn't really do it justice as the water looks a lot bluer than it really is. Also it's a little blurry and my man became a lot fatter (maybe from eating too much trout in butter sauce?)  :2funny: I should also add that I didn't have either of the greens (Viridian (which Chroma don't make) or Pthalo Green so I have to use Forest Green)  The problem is then that anything mixed was no quite the same colours as shown by Dennis so had to make do with what I ended up with in same cases....yet another case for a materials list prior to the start of the course so we can make sure we met all the requirements.

Very nice work Jackie.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

It took me a while to let go of the 'I must match Dennis' colours' exactly. Not just in the pastel, but the w/c as well. Now I know the colours well enough to say, ok...I need a bright green, dark or mid green and just aim for that range and go with it.  It's just another step forward in to 'painting on our own'  :painting:       :eek: Bit scarey at first, huh?
Cheers, Val
