KathyS,

It does look like you put a lot of effort into this drawing.  It has a lovely rustic feel to it.

The little clumps of grass seem too uniform and too dark.  (I have an awful problem with clumps of grass, too!)

The trees above the right side of the house appear to be sitting on the roof.

I like it!  A few tweaks and it'll look grand.

Excellent, Kathy :clap: :clap: :clap: You have captured the essence of tonal ranges and values O0 In this lesson I'm not too worried about small details.

 :thankyou: Mea, Dennis, Steve, Trev, Win, and Val. Now that I've stepped away from it for a few days, I feel better about how the painting turned out. The purpose of the lesson came through: the tonal values.

Now I'm working on lesson 3, Simplifying a painting.  :painting:

I like that, Steve.  Did you use Payne's grey or your burnt umber/ultramarine blue mix?

Thanks, Mea. :) It was ultramarine blue and either burnt umber or raw umber. I forgot. Either makes black.

 O0 Good job, Steve.  :clap: You have a nice range of tones. It feels similar to what we learned in the Let's Draw class but with watercolor.  That was how I felt when I did this lesson.

Your tree has a mischievous face!  :D  I'm surprised Mea didn't see it. She's always finding shapes in trees and clouds.  :2funny:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Excellent job Annie, Kathy, Steve and all the rest, too many to name.  I thought I had done this lesson for it seemed so familiar but looking back on my work, it doesn't seem as though I did.  So this is another for the future.

Well done!  O0 This was a great lesson, I learned a lot about water control. Actually I think this lesson was most likely responsible for helping me out of the cauliflower patch!  ::)
