It was great to see a lot of familiar names on the live painting class today.

Since I was using only one eye, my perspective is all off, but I learned a lot just by listening.

Thanks, Nolan.

Thanks Nolan, Bill, and Zayn,

Actually my eye gave out and I had to cut a lot out of the painting.  It's not very good. 

I have trouble with green - and mixing green in gouache has never worked well for me.

Working with one eye throws prospective all off, too.


Main thing was I got to do a PB lesson again and know old friends were there cheering me own.

Thanks, Nolan.

Thanks, Bill.  I like using gouache..  It's so much easier to use than watercolor, but the colors are not luminous.

Louisa,

Thank you.  So happy to see your name on the classlist chat the other day.

How are you doing?
My eye should be better by the end of the month.  Had a two-hour surgery to replace a lens put in last year that did not solve my pressure spike problem.  This new one had to be sutured into place.  I cringe just thinking about it.

Hope to be more active on PB in a month or so.

Nice painting Liz.  Missed the class.  I have been busy with grandchildren which is nice for a change since the virus.

Mea so sorry to hear about your eye it's terrible when you cannot see properly. I had lens replacements on both my eyes and I have to go back to a retina specialist for my left eye has a problem. My husband passed on in March and I am trying my hardest to get back on track. Lots of love to all my PB family. :hug:
