Thank you so much Annie I still think I am dreaming and am affraid to awake...but I know this is the most perfect thing that I ever dreamed of could happen.

Congratulations Rick with your Scolarship :flowers: :clap: . Enjoy it a lot...I do, I just started the lesson about glazing. I did plan to paint the Blue Tit, but I think I still keep it a little simpler so my hands get the feel back for painting.  I just try to follow the lessonplan...skipping those that have not my interest but to be honest...I am a little overwhelmed by the amount of classes there are, so many beautiful subjects, so many awesome paintings...I know I can do them but right now I still dont have the convidence I am able to.

But I know our friends here seem to think different about that, and seem  to know me better, and do know what I can and am able to...and that is the boost I so needed. And it is just so great that our PB friends here  wanted to help us to come back to what we so loved to do...I will always remember because my days now are again filled whit colours and happy feelings about that first little colourblob on canvas, paper or board.

Riya,

I just love how happy you are with your scholarship.  Marsha must be guiding your hand.

Keep letting us know how you are doing.

Oh, I just finished watching the color pencil video and I am amazed how Dennis did that deer/doe.  :heeha:
I don't like to paint animals, people or flowers and was wondering if Dennis would do a stream with lots of rocks and a dead stump or tree in watercolor pencils???

 :thankyou:
