Oh Pat...wonderful job!!  Just a little 'glow' and softening, and it's gorgeous.  You did an awesome picture. Sure a good lesson in tones. Look forward to doing it.

Well Patricia I think you did a fine job.  :clap: :clap: :clap: Each one is going to look different. Dennis's has more bluish color in his. His back ground has some light reddish browns in it. Actually at first I thought you did yours in pencil.  :whistle: :whistle: Still a good job.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Jennylynn, Josie, Retta and Nina for your lovely comments. The lesson was interesting Jennylynn and I enjoyed it even though I messed up my first try and had to start over again.  Retta and Nina, my colours actually came out a sepia colour but I have a new operating system which I am not familiar with and I tried to "brighten" my picture and it came out dark.  I will try and submit my "sepia" one so that you can all see what I mean.  If I mess up, please forgive me for I don't quite know this new system which is a real pain. Anyway, I will have a go and see what happens.

P.S.  I managed to resize it and I posted it with the other darker photo. Hopefully, you will be able to see the orange tint ... I don't know how to make it clearer to view.

Patricia - I think you've done a splendid job. I've only gotten through a portion of the lesson so far (had to fly to Long Beach for my stepson's graduation today from Long Beach State University - getting a masters in math!) I recall that Dennis said it's not the color that matters, it's the tonal usuage - which you've accomplished well!!! Can't wait to finish mine later this week!
Cheers,
Sharon

Excellent, Patricia :clap: :clap: :clap:  Very well done O0  Main thing here was to be able to see and apply the tonal ranges - as I always have said that tonal ranges are very much more important than colour. ;)

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Sharon and Dennis for your encouraging comments.


Sharon, congratulations on your step-son's accomplishment.  Wow, a Master's in Maths ... wonderful. Looking forward to seeing your statue which no doubt, will be fantastic as all your artwork is.


Dennis, the lesson was excellent especially as I am always afraid of going too dark and I don't always "see" the tonal ranges as they should be so this was a wonderful exercise.  Thank you.

Patricia you have done a marvellous job on this statue and it does not look easy and I agree with the other comments that have been made its the tonal range that is important and you have done an excellent job, you are going from strength to strength in your work keep it up   Ray

Hi Everyone.  Happy to be back painting again.  I have been very busy lately and not much free time.  But today was a painting day.   I enjoyed this one Dennis!  Thank you.  Hope I did okay:
