 :heeha: Love your sheep Sue!!! I think this is one of my 'missed' lessons  ::)   As I recall, I've heard a number of people say this one was a lot tougher than they thought it would be. Mixing greens is a tough lesson, it will become much easier once you reach the mixing green chart lesson. It may seem like it would be a bit mundane...but don't pass it by. One of the best lessons which can also be applied to any colour you wish.  O0

I think you've done very well Sue  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Louisa,

The change in the sky is remarkably better.  I love the fence.  Great shading on the grassy foreground.

Only eye grabber is that blue-green spruce tilting to the left in the middle of the painting.

Maybe darken the river in the very bottom of the painting.

You are getting there with watercolor.  Each try is better than the last.

I'm proud of you for sticking with it!

Louisa I think your second one is much better. Your trees on the left look really good. But the tree in the middle is to round. Fix that and that will help.  :clap: :clap:

Louisa you are going along great, your 2nd painting is much better.  One more little, the yellow is to bright  you could also do abit of dabing with tonal value in it as well as the beige one (to uniform) :clap:

 :thankyou: Dennis for another enjoyable class. I am beginning, just beginning, to understand mixing and layering color on a painting. You are right, mixing color is an art in itself. There is so much to learn and master.  :painting:

Yikes, KathyS, my imagination went wild on this.  I see a grandmother and her grandkids in the tree on the left!

I like the fence, stream, and grass.  The trees in the center seem to have too much trunk showing.

Sky looks good, although the white streaks look too rigid unless they are jet streaks. The top of the green tree on the right does not seem to match the bottom of it

All in all, I like it.

Well done Kathy! This is one lesson I want to review again before I tackle some of the subjects I have lined up. Most of my subject matter down here has a ton of greens funny enough!  ;)    ;D

Mea, I can see a little boy sitting in that tree plain as day! Don't know where you're hiding grandma and the others....are you sure the lid is tight enough on that glue pot?   :whistle:     :2funny:
Cheers, Val

A very nice painting, Kathy! O0 O0

I can see you improving with each watercolor you do.
