Thanks, Dennis.  Keep pointing out what I need to do right and I'll get better fast.

Really looking forward to the next one.

Mea, just one advanced lesson has elevated you to such a higher level .... even Dennis says that you are now on your way.  How exhilarating is that?  I am soooooo excited for you.   Great job.

Mea, great job.  Looks like a great course. I envy you all in attempting Dennis' enjoyable teaching. 
I'll keep poppin in to see how it's going.  Would love to do it, but it's not in my cards.....maybe next year.
I look forward to seeing all of your work in the course.
Beautiful so far!

Retta,

Thanks.  It's extra challenging, but should be well worth the time.

Nina,

Thanks.  Look forward to seeing your fuschia soon.

Danielle,

Your fuschia is soft and delicate.  Lovely, lovely.

Now I want to redo mine without all the background stuff I wasn't suppose to add.

How big did you make yours?  I shrunk mine down to 9" x 12."

My top leaf had a bit more sunlight than yours, but your whitish-blue look on the leaves looks better than mine.

Plus you did a great job on the bumbiness around the veins.  I need to work more on that.

Were you as surprised as I was when he brought out the watercolor pencils?

Oops, hope I'm not telling too many secrets.

Great job, Danielle.

aloha
