Thanks Cath, the lighting helped a lot.  I think it will be good to use for a shadowbox also.  I have not attempted this yet but I will soon enough.

 :heeha:   Believe me Ginger, when I was on the boat   :boat:    I would have died and gone to heaven to have that space.  :cloud9:   I think it is a great setup for now. It doesn´t take a lot of room to paint a masterpiece... just perseverance.   O0
Cheers, Val

Thanks Val, it is really perfect and all I need for now.  I am fortunate in that before I moved, I was able to aquire much of the tools and equipment.  Now I am in a furnished trailer without much room for my things so I decided to turn this small space into a "work of art" no pun intended...

I need some help with what to do.  I am painting the boathouse and am having trouble painting the water reflections because I have lost the tooth to my canvas, it has dried white paint on it that I used to cover the other colors that soaked that I painted incorrectly.  I thought that I could sand it off and now it is a slick canvas.  Now I have no idea what to do as I can not get the paint to perform correctly when trying to blend the colors in the water.  I hope I can fix it.

all I can think of is to use a soft brush, then lay the paint down with the side of the hairs instead of the tip in a more impasto style

I will give it a try and see what I can do with it.  Now I see that all the recommendations to prime and sand down your canvas's is not such a good idea. I think my mountains and boat house look pretty good, so I hope I can fix it. Thanks Nolen.

I never prime and sand - the canvasses come pre-primed and I find if you sand the canvas is too smooth so the paint slips :crazy2:

Yes, that is pretty much what I found.  I was able to get a layer of paint down, not what I want but now I am just going to let it dry and see what else I can do with it.  I may end up painting it again when I get the technique for the water reflection down.  I should have taken the Water Reflection course first.  It is a shame but a great lesson, none the less.
