Mea, just got a gander at that great kettle.  I like the first one as it has a cool textured look, but WOW you pumped it up with the second.  Great to see those reflections and purply colors.  Beautiful.  You should indeed be proud!


Patricia, a beautiful rendition.  Love the array of reflected colors and the high shine.  Lovely.

Thanks Lynn.  The kettle lesson is a really good one.  Love how Dennis finds all the reflected colors.  I don't think I ever really paid attention to reflected colors - now I see the difference they make.

Patricia and Mea, your kettles are amazing! 

Patricia, you are not the only one to see errors after you see your work in a different environment.  I think this is why some say put it upside down, or have a look in a mirror, when you think you are done.
Cheers, Annie

 :thankyou: :thankyou: Lynn and Annie for your lovely comments and suggestions.


Annie, I am just too happy to get the painting done and posted for I am so far behind in everything and feel quite over whelmed by it all. However, perhaps I should take a minute and look at my finished paintings in the mirror or upside down as you suggest, to see if it looks O.K. for far too many times I submit the painting and then see the flaws.  Darned annoying!!  lol!!!  Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

 :thankyou:  Val, I so appreciate and value your comments.  Strange that you should say I am excelling with the pastels for I have looked over some of my past pastel works and I too think, that that is "my medium" and perhaps should concentrate on pastels. Having said that, I always wanted to do acrylics and am going to give it a go when I get some time, hopefully in the New Year.

Patricia and Mea AWESOME Kettles!!!  :clap: :clap: :clap:   I can say that after taking this class.  OMG what a struggle for me.  Dennis another fabulous class.  It was great fun and I really enjoyed it. I lost my lines below on the bricks so they are a little wonky ::)

awesome Lisa...  yeah, I found out about loosing lines.. makes things go wonky for sure.  Your bricks look good to me though.. Is there a secret to not loosing lines?  or just somehow keep those places clear?  ack!  pastels don't do what I want them to do yet.. lol but they will!!!!!  I hope!

Hi Lin,

In this case I was resting my hand on the paper while I drew the upper section. (I do that because I have an arm injury)  The template transfers can be difficult sometimes especially if you are using colored paper.  There is a fine line (hahha) between getting a clear line and pressing too hard that you get indents in your paper.  I usually use the technique that Dennis shows but I have used transfer paper and that will sometimes give you a better line.  And sometimes going over the lines after transferring the template is helpful

Great kettle, Lisa Gale.  Is that done in pastel?  it looks so smooth.

This has been one of my favorite lessons, once I salvaged my colored pencil attempt by rubbing over it with a nearly dry-damp brush.  Came out really good then.
