This is beautiful and I love the detail - even in the shadows!  :congrats:

 :thankyou: Val - and if you need to relax, definitely take this class - especially the part when you paint the background...there is a bit of time with the camera isn't on the painting so you have to improvise a bit, but heck, we're all pros by now is it's no biggie!
Cheers,
Sharon

 :doh: I received a message from on of my students who is waiting for me in the Rio. Wanted to know if I would consider making a video for the class! At my rate they'd have to make a sequel out of it!!!  :crazy2:

 :sweat: I decided to have a go at this yesterday, and did make a few minor changes. Mine is a smaller format and rather than shrink it down and go   I chopped off some of the outer edges. My version is 17x23 (6 5/8"x9")

I did watch the video, but decided I need the practice and worked direct from the photo. I must be be mad!  :crazy2:   I did the drawing, painted the background, and put in the shadows! I may have gone through a third of a bottle of eye drops, and half a box of kleenex polishing/cleaning my glasses and my magnifier!  :tongue:    I really need one of those big ones to clamp on the table.
Lloyd didn't even complain (too much) about missing his lunch and getting a throw together supper!  :2funny:

My eyes are in need of a bit of a rest after that, so thought I'd post this for anything you might see that I may have missed (Sharp eyed Sharon & Dead Eye Dennis  ;) ).

If anyone else wants to put in their two pence.... I could use it as I'm a getting a bit low on paper!  :whistle:    ;D

Cheers, Val

Note to Dennis....  The comment about shouldn't have trouble unless this is painted in the summertime...never a truer word spoken!  :tongue:

The main cabin was 100F give or take a degree, and the water in my mix was evaporating faster than I could get it on the paper!  :sweat: Have never done so much mixing so quickly...I think it has helped me on that front! No time to fiddle too much. So even though some of the colouring is a bit off, it only took a couple of hours to paint! Now that's amazing!!!  :heeha:

Not so sure about the 'relaxing' bit.  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Val.  You did well considering the heat and water evaporation.  Love it.   :clap: :clap:

Stellar job, Val! :yippee::yippee:.

If you want to work on this a bit more, think about strategically adding a gray tone shading to give the material some depth. Right now it's a bit flat. :)

Wow, Val.  No wonder your eyes are tired.  Such incredible detail.  Good work.

Agree with Steve about the contrast, though.

Sharp Eyed Sharon Here: Really Nice job for not following the video, Val - and you nailed the shadings!  One suggestion: add gray "suggestions" of stitches in the middle section especially, but also on all of the white areas to make it look more like macrame then paper.
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks guys, this is a work in progress. The various tones have yet to be added once I can focus and see straight again!  :D Hopefully I'll pick a cooler day 



Cheers, Val
