At the start I had some difficulties with the picture and the sound but after a while it got right. The class was verry interesting as allways.

I like your reflections Harald - great speed too - obviously you didn't stop for breakfast before you posted.
I painted along too but I drew the picture in a hurry myself because i didn't have the pdf - my own fault I'll have to book much earlier or something. I've just got an approximate version of Dennis' pic because the picture wasn't there for long. I enjoyed the practice. Could you tell us your colours in advance Dennis? Even though we should be able to guess them by now! Looking forw

Harold and Karen you painted along with Dennis!  Awesome!

You both did a wonderful job.

Karen!  You drew the picture freehand???!!!  I'm astounded!

You guys amaze me!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Absolutely lovely - both of you  :clap: :clap: :clap:  Painting along is not an easy exercise at all and you both have done well  O0

With this type of practice you both - and any other who have painted along - will progress at amazing speed. You know why? Because you do not have time to fiddle with small insignificant details that don't really matter at all.

I'm really proud of members who have the courage to paint along- no matter whether they think they make mistakes along the way.

Harald:  Just one minor comment - the area where the boatman's hand is needs some details of the background bushes added in.

Karen: If my memory serves me correct - you signed on at the last minute and had no template at all. Fantastic! I love the way you added your on interpretation. Love your bushes - see how you do not need any detail at all to make a nice painting.

Both of you have that nice shine on  the water  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Magnificent Karen and Harald... you have done an outstanding job on this!  I am in absolute awe. 

Dennis, you are an awesome teacher  :not_worthy:

I am not as active on the forum as usual...so I would like to apologize... still experiencing major problems with my laptop which is still at the shop... should hopefully have an answer today.

Brilliant work you two 'paint-alongs'   :clap:   :clap:
I have thought of trying it myself .... I shudder to think at the result with the bits and pieces I'd end up with  :faint:
Never know ... just might start a new fad in painting technique!   :2funny:   :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Well here is my painting that I did with Dennis. I really enjoyed this one. In fact I put it in a frame.  :2funny: Thanks Dennis you are an awesome teacher. Thanks for all of your encouraging words.  O0
I must say when you paint along you have no time to to fiddle with it. Which is good to do it that way.

Harald and Karen great job on your paintings also.  O0
