I assume it was included, my mistake.

Just always make sure :) Normally free class replays are at an extra cost :) So everyone saved an extra new dollars here :)

Nolan,

I was looking where you buy the courses instead of on the left side where the replays are. I went back to the email you sent us about the replays and there it was you said "You will find it listed on the left hand side inside the "Live Webinar Replays" box as:

Oil 28 Painting from Photos"

Sorry for the uproar this was my first time and I was so excited I didn't read the email through.  :blush:

Again  :thankyou: for all you have done.


Penny

Happy Painting

Aha  ;D Just glad you are able to access.

We didn't think that Paint Basket TV would become so large, so do need to make the page more user friendly now.

Hi Nolan
A thought has just occured to me. I now understand about copyright of photos, but how do we stand on painting our own version of somebody elses paintings, although I guess copyright may well still come into it, but what about painting a version of say a Turner or a Matisse etc, or indeed any artist that is no longer alive? :thankyou:Mahlstick

if the artist has been dead for 100 years you should be fine, as far I know the country with the longest copyright law is 100 years after the person has died.

Thanks for the lesson on photo manipulation.  I have tried to use the program that I have (came with my camera) but I thought it wouldn't do what I wanted it to, and was wondering for a long time about purchasing Photoshop.  I had my daughter view some of your replay-(she is an expert with photoshop and uses it at home and in the workplace) and she has helped me understand and use some of the parts of the software I already have. They are similar, but of course Photoshop (and PhotoImpact) is more powerful.  Turned out I can do almost everything you showed us, if I can only remember what she showed me.  As it is for for most things, I guess I just have to spend more time playing with it.  Thanks for the opportunity to showme to show her exactly what I wanted to do.
btw-will we be doing a series of sample painting-similar to what we did in the still life class?  If so I want to gesso over an old canvas to recycle it, so I would like to go ahead with this before class.  If we are doing a single 16x20 painting, then I will use a new canvas.  Thanks again

I think Nolan said he was going to do a full 16x20 for the skies.

Ray.

This sounds very good Nolan.  I think I'll sign up for this once I get past the portrait course.

Sorry Germa, things just got a little bit hectic around here.  :flowers:

I like the texture you've put in the trees, I tried that once with w/c, didn't work out so well.  ::) I guess that is best left to the oil/acrylic crowd.  ;D

The little house is cool, enjoyed reading about them. Didn't know you had hobbits in the Netherlands! Maybe where Tolkien got some of his ideas.

You seem to be at a stage I used to get myself into all of the time. One of those bad habits I'm still struggling to break. I start painting with no idea where I'm going, then it happens....where do I go with this? I'm trying to make myself plan it out before I start...but...bad habits are hard to break. I've left many a painting partially done because I didn't plan it out. I'm getting much better, but there are times..... I think perhaps I'll go and read 'How to Paint the Perfect Painting' again!  ;D

I think it is lovely. It seems to need something in the lower right hand section. A herd of sheep perhaps! Good job.

Germa,
Your trees are ggod and the grass is good. I think that you have a problem with perspective? The trees are seen as is you were about 3 meters from the ground but the house and path are like you were 200 meters up.
Plus there doesn't seem to be a focal point for the composition. The path leads your eye up to the top right of the picture and there is nothing there.
The way I like to work is to make several sketches of the picture before I begin painting, maybe make a colored pencil sketch, or to look at a lot of reference pictures. That way I fix the picture in my mind and I can move the objects around to get the focal point where I want it, the perspective so it's realistic and the composition pleasing. I find more pleasure in the results when I have things worked out before I paint.
Hope this helps, I love your paintings, you obviously have lots of talent.
Tot Ziens
