My computer when down during the last live broadcast....I just watched the recording of it. I just want to be sure about something...did we start the sunset painting at all yet? I hope not. When I watched the recording of last show, it stopped just after the water drop tutorial part.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Thanks Ella, but I already watched it, and as far as I know, Nolan didn't start the new painting (Sunset), am I right? Last week he talked about beginning it, and I just need to know if I am missing something. I hope he has NOT started it yet, so I have a chance to catch up and begin it with the rest on Tuesday.

Well I managed to stay awake long enough to start my sunset .... Nice blue, great pink and a horrible lime green sky  :'( :'(

If you want to stop the blue sky merging in with the yellow glow and producing green then below the blue of the sky carefully lay and blend in a strip of orange the same tone as the sky. Then you can safely blend the yellow into the lower part of the orange.  Just make sure that you get the tonal range such that there is no dark orange strip. All must be blended perfectly.

This will stop the green strip and all will look perfectly natural. Try it out first on a piece of scrap board until you are happy doing this to  proper painting.

Adding this buffer zone will save you a lot of frustration. I use this method.

Hi Pat, hope you got what you were looking for as you only have 1 day to catch up. We indeed started with the Sunset painting but only in the second half of the webinar.  First half Nolan showed us how to paint the water drops on our Tulip painting. Do not worry because we can always go back to the videos and do it on our own pace. In case you didn't find last weeks webinar, click on watch tv now and look at the left hand side for all the classes.

Yes, Ella, I got it now. Nolan split the two paintings into separate videos to make it easier to follow. I have not started the sunset painting yet and probably won't till the end of next week. I need sleep again! It's a real problem I have.....when I paint, my mind is flying all night long, even if I paint half an hour. I don't like this idea, but I have no choice. I think I'd do a better job if I had sleep anyways.

Thanks for the supporting comment there Val. I am a pretty "driven" person, but it's killing me! Too bad, this has to happen when I paint. I used to excercise too, and the exact same thing happened to me. I had to end that also. I think I can get by with "painting" though. Just need some break now and then.

It is a wise man who knows his strengths and weaknesses....It is a brilliant man who learns to balance the two.  :clap:
