I enjoyed this one until I saw the photo. The poor house looks like it got measles. :2funny:

You can see how each one gets a little more involved than the last, eh Louisa!  ;D   The detailing and techniques start to get a little more complex as you go along and you are tackling them beautifully. Seems the cure for the 'measles' would be calomine, but in this case perhaps just a little water to lift out the darker spots so they meld in better.
The snow looks great and that is one cold wintry sky. (A subject I became all too familiar with  :cold: )  Very nicely done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thank you Val, Danielle and Retta. Val you always make me giggle with your sharp replies and I sure will tone down the measles. Danielle will try and fix that wall and Retta you make me feel so good about myself. :thankyou: :hug: :hug: :hug:

Hi All,

Here is my attempt at the winter trees. Always bundles of fun painting along with Dennis, just wish I had more time to paint more! I got a bit carried away (as usual) with areas of the painting and feel that my main right hand tree is to busy. My building is also a bit too dark on the shadow side i think. Putting the smoke in caused me all sorts of problems as i made it too billowy and not delicate enough but sheesh did I learn a lot from this lesson. I think I may just gove it another try. Note to self - sometimes less is more! Anyway thanks Dennis and Nolan...

 :clap: Very well done, Trev! It does look like a fun lesson.  I think I just finished lesson 11 in watercolor. Nine more to go and I can play with this one too.  :yippee: I agree, painting along with Dennis is a lot of fun.   :D

Well done Trev! I actually like the smoke, it makes the air look very still. Great atmosphere.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
