Dennis, I seem to be having a problem with the Reference Photograph for this lesson.  When I click on "Reference Photo" I get a blank screen.  I have tried several times.  I have watched 25 minutes of the video which is fine, no problem there.  Hope you will be able to throw some light on why the reference photo is not loading.  Many thanks,


Patricia

Dennis, I solved the problem. I remembered we had the same problem with the Pastel class which Ray solved for us. So I went over to the Pastel section, had a look to refresh my memory and did exactly what he had told us to do but changed the information and was able to access the reference photograph (thank you Ray!!)


So for anyone having the same problem type in:

and you will get access.


Hope this helps.

Problem fixed. Couldn't do it earlier as Nolan and I went to look at an art exhibition.

This is my submission for the lesson. Thank you Dennis for an enjoyable lesson which I found difficult. I had such problems with my colours despite using the same brand of colours as you did but for the life of me my colours could not match yours. I was thinking the colour on my monitor must be off. Anyway, once again, this was the best I could do --- for the second time around  :pullhair: . Yes this was my second try. I also had a problem with my colours separating despite me stirring continuously.  It is rather humid here so that may have had something to do with it. Anyway, all comments and critiques are most welcome.   Thank you. Patricia












This hopefully will be better to see the sepia colour and the orange glow on this photo.

Lovely painting Patricia,  the colours are great, no problem there.      I would just add the light orange in the skin area that Dennis did in the video, it would add light to your painting.   One other thing you could soften the lines around the head (hair). :yippee:

Patricia,

Wow, that's really well done.  Agree with Danielle on the orange to add highlight.

I'll have to work up serious courage to do this one.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: Danielle, Mea and Natalie for your lovely comments and suggestions.  I actually have a lot of orange on his forehead and side of the head but the photograph did not pick it up.  I will soften the lines around his head, thanks for the suggestions which are always much appreciated.
