Louisa,

Your abandoned fire truck is fantastic.  Such details as the windshield wiper and the lettering are amazing.  Even your rust look great.  The hose connection on the side of the truck looks so real.

Only thing that might need a bit more color is the front fender.  Looks a bit too light to me.  But that might be the photograph.

You have done an amazing job on this!!!  Be proud!

Louisa this is a lovely painting.  I would put a bit more dark value behind the mirror to push it away from the truck.   Hope you don' t mind my saying so.   :clap:

Well, here is my rendition, since I couldn't find any PDF handouts, decided to use one of my own photographs.  Since more bushes covered the right hand side of the car, I had to wing drawing the missing half of the car, so many alterations had to be made when things didn't look right! :2funny:  I am no petrol head.  What do you think, or where am I wrong?BBC embed code    
hope this works this time, thank you Val for fixing up my last gaffe!! :clap:

Fig,

Love the old vehicle.  Great rusty patches.

Two concerns, both should be very quick fixes:
1. The top of the fender on the right needs to stand out just a bit more from the mountain.

2. There needs to be something at the top of the car to indicate the rounding of the roof.  You have it over the door, maybe just extend a narrow strip across to the other side. Unless, it is a convertible with the top down!

Oh, this is a really fine work!  Great vibrant color.

aloha

To get to the pdf handouts - when you go to watch the video itself, scroll down, the handouts are below the video

Post by: Fig Artist on January 09, 2015, 03:54:27 AM
Thanks all for your feedback.  Mea, will attend to the fender and change the colour of the rounding ( it is white so not very visible from the sky.  Also the rounding of the back wheel, tks Nolan.  Am beginning to think I have lost it, but there was definitely no Pdf handout at the bottom of the video!  :thankyou: :thankyou: :fight: :crazy2: :confused:

Just have that sneaky feeling that this attempt to post my painting will fail again  :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: but perhaps some bright spark can retrieve it for me.  Does anyone know if it is an iPad peculiarity?  Lots of work this one, but thoroughly enjoyable! ;DBBC embed code

Fiona, I think I'm seeing a pattern here ......  :detective:    When you go to get the BBC Code, look to the right and there will be some letters and numbers contained inside square brackets. If you click beside them in the box, they will be highlighted. Then use your 'control C' and 'contol V' to copy it into your post.  Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you still have any difficulties.  :)

Post by: Fig Artist on January 12, 2015, 04:22:39 AM
Thanks Val, must definitely be an ipad problem, as there is nothing other than the brackets shown.  Will go and check on a computer.  Also, when I post pictures in Albums, that is the only time the Bbc code message shows.  If I go back now there is no sign of that anywhere! :confused: :confused: :thankyou: :'( :help:
Title: Re: 27 - Abandoned Car in Oil
Post by: Bellarina on January 12, 2015, 01:20:39 PM
Fiona, you'll need to change to a file stack view to see the code.  Hope that helps.
Anyway lovely job on the abandoned car.  O0
Title: Re: 27 - Abandoned Car in Oil

Tks Bellarina, have seen that somewhere, will go and have a look! :thankyou: and  :thankyou: again!
Title: Re: 27 - Abandoned Car in Oil
Post by: Fig Artist on January 12, 2015, 05:38:52 PM
Oops, nothing again, found the file stack view and number, but we remain invisible!  Think I am a lost cause Bellarina, I give up! :crazy2: :uglystupid2: :tickedoff:


Only a slight error Fiona. I changed your smd to smg, and took out the spaces on either side of the = sign. Presto!! You're getting there.  O0
Cheers, Val

Fiona did you Ctrl and V your code in the reply box? I had the same problem in the beginning and then Nolan helped me. Wish I could help you.

Fiona in reply number 42 you added the code correctly but it didn't show because of the spaces on either side of the = sign. Just remove the spaces and your image will embed correctly O0

As far as the painting is concerned - you have done a stunning job :congrats:

Thanks  Nolan, will give that a bash next post, although to be honest, I think I typed that in physically (didn't copy and paste) in desperation!! ;D ;D ;D   :thankyou:

Post by: Val on January 21, 2015, 05:10:45 PM
 :oops: I should have read the rest of the thread first!  :blush:   Fiona, I fixed your code and left an explanation for you.

Just in case I forgot..... brilliant work on the truck!  O0    :heeha:    :clap: :clap: :clap:
