Kathy, Patricia lovely rendering. It's so interesting to see the individual touch of the paintings.

Win, the LIVE classes come on only occasionally and have nothing to do with the normal class releases.
For upcoming classes to be released, go to the PB HOME page, click on classes and then in the dropdown click on "coming soon". There you will find the class you are looking for.

The template you will find that in the Watercolour Classes in the Forum.

 :thankyou:  Gita for your lovely comments and I too, find it so fascinating that we all see things differently. Our paintings all have their own personality because of how we interpret what we are seeing.  Interesting I find.




Win, I hope you found the spot which Dennis has directed you to. If not, give a shout and we will help.

 :thankyou:  Zayn for your lovely comment.  Yes, each one has its own personality which is interesting for I guess if they were all exactly the same, it would be boring for the viewers.   Patricia

Here is Bill's version of the #119 Watercolor Blue Gum Trees in a Forest and the comments that were offered when I tried to help him get it into the right place, but ended up putting it in with a different Blue Gum Tree lesson.

From Bill76434:
My take on this lesson, please I would like your critique       

Comments:
From Mea:
Bill,
I LOVE your take on the Blue Gum tree painting.  Great foreground.  Nice bark. Maybe blur the thinnest distant trees a bit more.

aloha

mea


From Linley:
I like the lighter area in the middle of the bark area that indicates a sunnier patch. Great job!

Reply from Bill:
 :thankyou: Linley and Mea. Mea,I did look at these posting but they are of a different lesson. I don't mind where it is though. I shall do a blur as you suggest.

OK,  I think I have everything all in one place now.  I will try to delete the other postings so all the messages can go to one place.

Hope I did not cause too much confusion trying to be helpful.  Bill, your work is excellent and we want you to keep posting it.

aloha

 :heeha: So that's why I've been chasing this painting the past couple of days!   :detective:       :run:      :2funny:    No worries Mea, sometimes these things just happen.

Great job Bill, just one a small suggestion or two. The leafy tree branch which crosses over the trunk of the big tree, bring up the values so it comes forward and pushes the trunk further behind it. Possibly the same for the branch leaves coming in from the opposite side. They just tend to get lost in the background.

Overall, really good go.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Teresa and Val.
Yes I had some difficulty with those leaves, I reworked them but couldn't get them to my satisfaction. Another painting to return to  :-\
