Great job, Jennylynn.  I don't think you could improve on it if you took your time.  You are so good!!!    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Val, you sure amaze me.  You've done so well!   :congrats:

I was watching as best I could, had to take time out to prepare supper now and again, so wasn't much help.  Sorry!

What a great class!  I'm looking forward to getting back into the watercolors.

Post by: Val on October 28, 2012, 10:23:41 PM
Thanks Jenny....but I didn't have the template...my printer died. No template, no photo. I tried to draw it as I went along, I see I missed the nails and the snap on the chain. While you lot were busy painting your bricks, I was trying to draw them really fast and still finish painting the chain.  :2funny: Lloyd just shook his head and kept reading.  :2funny: I was talking to myself, the computer, and everybody listed on the screen!  :D  :2funny:

Between running up and down stairs for masking fluid, sponges, hairdryer, drawing and painting..this was a workout!  :excercise:

Great fun...I won't do that again! Not without my template!  :heeha:

Thank you for your kind words Lillian. I'm afraid nothing could have helped.  ;D

Wow, you two!!
Jenn....you have really progressed to an awesome artist.  That is so outstanding!!   :clap:  Terrific.

Val...what a great job for what you were 'dealt' with.  You did a super job from the chat box.  The colors on your wood and chain are great. We weren't able to communicate very clearly for the plaster-brick side. Sorry about that, but you did very well for what you had.  Good girl.

Bella you are too kind. I thankyou for aiding and abetting my crime against art!  ;D  I still am having trouble lifting out highlights. Sooo, I painted a few dark spots and it seems ok...  :whistle:

Post by: lynn p. on October 28, 2012, 11:28:14 PM
JennyLynn and Val--Yours are awesome.  I missed all those crazy troubles Val had  because I couldn't get on, getting the message that said something like "Resource Limit reached".  So I printed my pic and began with the plaster the best I could (not of course using Dennis's technique) and finally got into the class after about 50 min.  I guessed on what to do, so I splattered masking fluid over the plaster and layered washes over it.  THEN, when I finally saw Dennis's picture, I realized that my color cartridge on the printer was giving out and that I had a washed out pink and blue version,---oh well, the exercise was fun non the less and learning to improvise has it's merits, huh Val :heeha:

Post by: lynn p. on October 28, 2012, 11:53:37 PM
OH, when I saw the real colors of this pic, I went back and darkened brick a bit and lightened wood some.  Think it's a bit better.  Thanks Dennis for a great class :)

Thank you :) Rita, Tania, Val, Lillian, Red, Mary. Brian, Bhavna. This was a fun exercise.

Lillian--Feel terrible that I have not posted about your college experience although I have been following it closely.  I've had no time lately, although you seem to always take the time to keep us updated on all of your classes.  So appreciate it, as we are all learning along with you.  Your posts truely do create a picture with words.  Especially love all your geode drawings and paintings and I have already learned from you that you can blow up a small area of an interesting subject and paint as an abstract.  Never thought of that before. I think you will love doing your old master copy using the gray scale.  When I have done that, I didn't really want to apply color over it because I liked it so much.  I am especially interested in the idea of doing a master by using full strengh color--almost seems like what some of the Warhol's were done in.  Please show us when you get finished.   :gl2:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Good job to Jennylynn, Val and Lynn for your paintings.  I actually posted ... or thought I had posted a message last night but don't see it.  These computer problems make me nuts  :D  Nevertheless, I mentioned in my previous post that your painting Jennylynn, looked 3D to me.  The wood looked as though it was in the foreground, the bricks behind it and the plaster behind the bricks ... it absolutely fascinated me for I am interested in and would love to learn how to paint a 3D effect.  Good work ladies!!  Patricia

 :clap:  Good job Dianne.  I just love the way you "made it your own" by changing the picture slightly.  Very creative.    "Off topic" (can't find the icon).  Hope you are over your surgery and that your family member is doing well too.  I remembered you in my prayers.  With regard to the storm and New Jersey, we have a very close friend who is almost like another daughter to me and we have been in contact.  They are having the most awful time, no electricity and won't have for probably another 10 days, losing all the food in their fridges/freezer.  They are also freezing in their homes with no heat.  Can't get to stores to buy food and some stores are not even open, some people don't have water.  Roads are flooded and full of debris so they are stuck.  It is just a nightmare.   Patricia

Lynn, Jenny and Chappy.. Thank you so, so much for your wonderful comments!  Now I feel like I've reached another little plateau!  :heeha:  Seems some things are just easier than others.
 
So sorry for your friends, Chappy.  I have been praying that everyone will soon have relief from this nightmare.  Lynn knows all too well what this is like.   I don't know that there is a good side to this, but I think we have to look for and be thankful for anything positive..bringing people closer, forgetting about differences and working together to get things as near to normal as possible. My kids were in Katrina and lost all they had, but they came through with flying colors!  Hopefully most people can overcome this tradgedy.

I am doing well from my surgery.  My nose is beginning to look like a real nose now! :yippee:  Still very sore and suppose it will be for some time.  I am just thankful that I am doing as well as I am.  It's better than no nose! :clap: :clap:  Now if I can just keep my painting on track!!!

Thanks, Nina... It felt good!  Question:  Most people pronounce your name as Neena.. with a long e; although I had a friend in school that pronounced it  with an  i. ... which is the correct one for you??
Title: Re: LESSON #41 - Old Wood and Plaster
Post by: Happychappy on October 31, 2012, 07:49:41 PM
Good to hear that you are back to normal Dianne.  We do take so much for granted until we no longer have it  then we only realise, so we must just continue to count our blessings.  Yes, disasters like "Sandy" certainly bring us closer.  My son-in-law is an Electrician and he says if he gets a call to help our neighbours, he is ready to go down to New Jersey to assist wherever he can.  So pleased that you are also back on track with painting too.  It is the most wonderful past-time.  Take care now, Patricia

Thanks again to all who took part in supporting my insanity...Lloyd was highly entertained.  ;D

Hi Val,

I did not get access to the forum for a while due to a glitch and I have just read your post.

Now you are the one who made me laugh so hard that I have woken up my wife (it is 5:40am). You are unique and I am glad to hear that our information helped.  :yippee:  :yippee:  :yippee:

I was just having another look at the paintings....I just noticed that the brick/plaster wall appears to be attached to the wood bit.
How come nobody told me that?   >:D   :2funny:

Hello everybody

Here is my effort at Lesson 41, Old Wood, Rust and Plaster.

I'm happy with the results and this has provided me a great foundation to paint a ramshackle old shack that I took a photo of on my second photo tour. Might even try to pump it out by Xmas as a present for my parents - they seem to like those old buildings. And since it was a shack with a cattle yard type structure it would take dad back to his childhood on a small dairy farm.

Going on the third photo tour, down as far as Byron Bay (another lighthouse!) at the start of next month. That's as long as my damaged foot can handle it. Indoor soccer injury I'm afraid - using a walking stick at the moment.

Anyway let me know what you think of my efforts on this one. For obvious reasons (a subject already in mind) I would really like any constructive ideas.

Old Wood, Rust and Plaster.
Old Wood, Rust and Plaster.

A couple of my friends have said this is their favourite so far. Go figure. Dunno if I'd be paying money to hang something like this on my wall. :confused:

And thanks for the wishes for my foot. That's sport for you. Unfortunately it's bruising on the bone which takes a little on the long side. However, hopefully I look a bit more dapper to the ladies with my stylish cobalt blue walking stick.  :2funny:

Mary, I have no idea why you're having a problem. Try clicking a few times in succession, that has sometimes worked when some wouldn't load for me. Otherwise maybe Nolan can help as no one else had a problem.

Still a no-go, Batman...here's what I get with that link: Duplicate headers received from server
The response from the server contained duplicate headers. This problem is generally the result of a misconfigured website or proxy. Only the website or proxy administrator can fix this issue.
Error 349 (net::ERR_RESPONSE_HEADERS_MULTIPLE_CONTENT_DISPOSITION): Multiple distinct Content-Disposition headers received. This is disallowed to protect against HTTP response splitting attacks.

I  love all the paintings that have been posted lately.  Everyone has done a fantastic job on this one!  :congrats:   
 
I'm way behind in painting, and even more so on posting to the forum!  It's seems like life suddenly got way too busy.  But, I finally did get my lesson done.  The photo didn't come out very good.  It's a bit on the blue side, and it's skewed.  But, if I wait until I get a better photo, I might not ever get back to it!  I have two paintings to get done for Christmas presents!  Anyway, here is my painting the Old Wood, Rust & Plaster.

 :eek: :heeha: WOW...talk about 3D!!!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Fantastic work Pat.  O0 Your wood is fantastic. The rusty chain looks fantastic. The bricks and plaster...did I repeat myself? The bricks and plaster look...you know  ;D   Just a comment here, I'm thinking that maybe a bit more of a shadow inside the plaster to push the bricks back a bit more?
 :2funny: Listen to me here....I wouldn't pay too much attention...you probably saw my ??? ??  >:D :2funny: :2funny:

And, yes Val, that plaster is pretty thin.  ;D I'll thicken that shadow line.  I remember the fiasco you had painting  your "Old Wood" lesson. :2funny:   You did pretty good considering all the problems you had to deal with!!   :clap:  I'm sure it was because of all our wonderful "help"  :2funny: :yippee: You'll have fun with this one if you choose to try it again!

Thank you everyone!! This was one of my favorite ones to learn.
Dennis, glad you like the bricks. Maybe I painted those well because I grew up in a home that was built (by my father and grandfather) with just those kind of bricks! :)
Thank you for all the time you put into preparing the lessons. The PDF's are so helpful when using the techniques in other paintings. I also really appreciate the background information you provide before the actual painting class. It adds so much more to our learning. You are great Dennis, thank you.

Title: Re: LESSON #41 - Old Wood and Plaster
Post by: thebryce on January 13, 2015, 05:55:23 PM

As usual I fiddle until my values drop requiring Paynes-grey to mix into the shadow colors.  I thought I might paint the plaster to offset the drop in values. The glazes turned opaque when I added in a small amount of white to try to lighten the values. Sorry, it totally changed the effect of a watercolor painting.

Title: Re: LESSON #41 - Old Wood and Plaster
Post by: thebryce on January 14, 2015, 04:35:17 PM
TY, I wish I had not used the white. It changed the nature of the watercolor paint so it acted like a gouache.
Title: Re: LESSON #41 - Old Wood and Plaster
Post by: Danielle123 on January 14, 2015, 05:16:34 PM
 :clap: :clap: Nice painting even if you used white,  but in water color to lighten the colour you just add water to your pigment mix and it lightens' it.   Best not to use white as much as you can.
Title: Re: LESSON #41 - Old Wood and Plaster
Post by: dennis on January 14, 2015, 06:18:50 PM
It's a pity you used the  white and overdid the Paynes grey. Otherwise a very good painting :clap: :clap: :clap:

I personally never use white in my paintings other than perhaps a very small highlight and signing my name in a very dark area.
The same with black (Paynes grey is just a blue-black). Black not properly used can kill a painting. I also had to learn the hard way :'(
The chain is well done as well as the plank it is on. The left side has too much white and Paynes grey.
I would suggest you do this over again and post it below the one submitted for comparison. Will help you as well as the others O0

Hi Everyone,
Long time since I found time to paint or write on the forum but I keep following up all your wonderful artwork.

Here is my submission, suggestions?  The chain doesn't stand up.

It was very challenging likely because I haven't paint for a while, but this is what vacation is for.  Conclusion: I need to take more vacation  :)

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Welcome back, Annie. Take a small round damp brush and lift out all the highlight areas on the chain links. That will make difference  O0

 :heeha: Hey... nicely done Annie! No critique coming from me.... I remember only too well the catastrophic, apocalyptic, and somewhat explosive feat of surviving that live class!  :eyesclosed: I could not in all honesty call it an accomplishment! How I'd love to do it all again!  :2funny:
 :think: We do have replays... and I will be in need of lots of practice... perhaps...  :attacked:     :faint:

Thank you Dennis, some improvement.   Thank you Mea and Val, fun to paint again... outdoor in a beautiful garden in sunny and warm Colorado.

Yes, better improved. Well done.  O0   If you're feeling somewhat daring... try to lift a little more?    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Will do, I think I will try to use a small rubber brush.   I cannot lift anymore with a soft brush.  Maybe I need to let the water stand a bit before lifting.   I will try.  Thanks Val.

p.s. talk about disaster... I tried 3 times yesterday to do that abstract roster!

 :) Hi Annie, I like all the different textures in your painting. I think I will try this class next. I, too, have been away from the paintbrush and PB classes.
Welcome back and happy painting  :painting:
