Thanks Leana, it was hard to paint on as well, had to keep mopping up the puddles!
Lillian all I did was lay it down on a towel and I ironed the back.  Then I took a chance and tried a corner on the front then ironed it all front and back.  It was bone dry before I tried it.  The wrinkles showed up in the photo as well :tickedoff:  It looked like it was ready for the garbage and as I did not feel like painting it again I thought, Nothing ventured, nothing gained so what the heck.  Seeing as we are all learning here I thought I would share my crazy idea, it was fast and easy...go figure
I agree if only it was that easy for our own buckled parts  :D

Great!    O0

I could really use something for my 'buckled parts', Sapphirelyn, but I think I'll reserve this technique for my artwork.   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Hi Julie, I really like your tonal painting.   :clap: :clap:

You have great contrast giving wonderful sunlight effects.

I"m impressed with both the painting ( the clouds in particular)  and the ironing

As for the OFF TOPIC discussion about removing the beauty marks of experience..... I, as a male, shall remain :-X silent!  ( My Moma didn't raise no  :idiot2: fool!)

O-kami.

I like your tree line behind the cottage

This is what is so encouraging to both Nolan and I, when we see just how many there are who are working diligently at the lessons we have been providing. It inspires us to carry on helping others who are trying their best to become better artists.

 :thankyou: all. :clap: :clap: :clap: You are all wonderful  O0 :smitten:

Very nice painting indeed  :clap: :clap: :clap: Only comment is about the doorway in the add-on. It is in the shadow side and the white area should be toned down to suit. Do that and the painting will be  O0
