Dennis thanks for this class. I hardly wait for it! I wanted to paint fog, but I was afraid. Now I'll be able to learn.  :thankyou:

William, I have a large roll of primed canvas (fine weave) and have taped a piece to another canvas panel just for a support.

here it is, I had fun painting this lesson, also painting myself in the process,  I find it stressing to try to go fast so my paint does not dry on me.  I did it on a watercolour paper primed with gesso, not the best result but good for practice.  i struggled with the shoreline and the part of water between bushes. Advice welcome.
    :thankyou: Dennis for the lesson and the wonderfull challenge you have given me for the year.   :1hug:

Danielle is beautiful. I am still struggling with. Hopefully I'll be able to finish tomorrow. Danielle, if you look at Joann fabrics or Michaels they have blocks of canvas paper. It is great for practice.  :flowers:

Well I went ahead and did give this one a try but I used my beloved oils. I hope that's okay. I hope it's okay to put it on this thread too. I had a lot of fun on this one. For some reason I got a row of ghostly tree's in the front of the back row and don't know how to fix it or even if I should?? What do you all think? Should I say I did this on purpose! :2funny:  also I amazed myself by painting the big duck freehand just like it was no problem at all!! easy peasy!! didn't think twice!!! what is happening?????  :2funny: Thanks so much Dennis for a really nice class. I would love to hear some comments and critiques.

Robynann,

I like the ghostly trees. Thought they were supposed to be there.  Love the whole shrouded, misty  look in the background.

Duck looks fine, just need to see his legs a bit more defined.

Good work on this.

Of course you did it on purpose, it's always good to make a painting your own... dare to be different.  ;)

What is happening?.....  :heeha:   You've become a wonderfully learned artist!  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

Love these paintings of the misty lakes.
 
Well done Lousia and Danielle  :clap: :clap:

Robynann good painting   :clap:, however  your duck looks like it is starting to walk out of the water, so I agree with Mea that it needs some legs.
Title: Re: Paint a Misty Lake
Post by: dennis on August 10, 2017, 08:15:05 PM
 :clap: :clap: :clap: Just move the shadow to right under the duck's body. That will make it swimming instead of trying to stand in deep water
