 :2funny: One can never have too much tea! As for trouble...dad used to say I didn't have to look for it, trouble would find me as that was my middle name!   >:D
I think that's why Lloyd buys me paints...keeps me off the streets (sometimes), and the Grenadians are forever grateful!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

THAT'S IT!!!! I SAW THE WHOLE THING...in only 1 1/2hrs! I couldn't believe it...a whole segment 'live' on watercolour drops for me?! Brought tears to my eyes  :'(  happy ones, I had to laugh out loud. Which reminds me, I gather they (teardrops) would be done the same way?
I'm so happy I might have to break out the search light so I can paint tonight.... :yippee:
Sorry folks...major breakthrough here.
 :thankyou:    :-*  :thankyou:   :-*   :thankyou:  :flowers:  :flowers:
 :clap:   :yippee:   :dance:  :'(  :2funny:  ;D
 :wave:

 :eek: Next challenge has presented itself. I practiced with my old paints, no problem lifting the colours. Before I tackled my painting, I thought it might be a good idea to have a practice run with the new paints I had used.  :heeha: Yowza! The paper started disintegrating before the colour! Checked on the W&N website and they actually have a medium to use before you paint to make lifting out colour easier. These paints have wicked staying power once dry. I think I'll leave my existing painting alone and try another one later. This is quite the learning curve on this journey of mine.  :D
Cheers, Val

Now, wait a minute! You're not getting outta this thing that easily.  :knuppel2:
You don't have to lift the color, you can also add the highlights.  O0
Come on, I wanna  see a water drop by Val.  :yippee:

Sorry Rick...I'll paint you a waterdrop with my old paints...that I can do.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Nina, I will post a waterdrop or two. Hopefully tomorrow when things settle down. I was working on a waterlily today...kind of got done in when the boat got waked.  :tongue: Oh well, will try again tomorrow.  :D
Cheers, Val
