Nolan -

Thank you very much for this class!  I just picked up my first paint brush a few months ago at a wine/painting class and thought I'd try one on my own.  Your Teddy Bear is my first painting - I had fun doing it.  I'm looking over the class offerings now for my next attempt.  Critique is welcome!  Gotta start somewhere :-).

 :welcome:  to our PB family Labsimmons.   You are a natural, to think that you have only recently picked up a brush and painted such a superb teddy which is excellently done, is phenomenal.  I can just imagine what work you are going to put out after a couple more lessons. Well, as you can gather, we have the finest tutors in Dennis and Nolan and a great bunch of members who are always ready to give kind, constructive help and advice when needed. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Mea and Patricia -  Thank you both for the encouraging words!  I really did get in a zone when painting the bear.  Just kind of a relaxing trance.  I have so much to learn and understand, but I'm going to enjoy this journey.  I'm scoping out what to do next now. I have a landscape photograph that I want to eventually paint (Prince Edward Island), but it has everything in it, and I need to learn how to paint the different subjects - sky, river, trees, broken bridge, ducks, farmhouses, and more...
