Wow you 4!

each different and each powerful examples of what is possible!  I hope  to start this one tomorrow, Paper is all ready and pencil lines are drawn..

Lillian, i love your "Deer" tree, but the rascal tripped me as I walked past and I ended up against the big tree on the right.      Boy, that hill is steep!  :yippee: :yippee:

seriously, that is another example, the first one I looked at today, the hill on the right was beautifully done as a steep slope and now yours with the steep side being the left side.  Each of you had something uniquely your own that was stunning!. 

I will "HOP" to it to start this one tomorrow.   ;D

I love the way Dennis casts a very detailed eye over everyones work! It's why these paintings are so good and, why the members are developing into great Artists.
I see how Dennis is giving the tools of creativity rather than just copying a painting. The techniques are the methods to carry forth into ones own creations later. Perfect Dennis, just perfect ;)

 :thankyou: Brian and thanks for the laughs too.

Tony!  Now look what you've done!  Dennis is blushing!   :2funny:

Honestly and truely Dennis I really do appreciate your comments and that you do give us the tools to create our own paintings.  I'm collecting the tools in my "data tool box" -- tips, color mixing, composition, perspective.....   :thankyou:   :flowers:

Lol!   ;D Sorry Dennis!  In fact, I'm gonna add a little more:
My painting 'The Eggsecution' is named because of Dennis 100%. It was Dennis seeing the story of an execution of the egg that I named it. The name was absolutely perfect and, I've enjoyed peoples feedback telling me so  :yippee:
 :thankyou:  Dennis for helping me name my painting 'The Eggsecution' ;)  O0

Oh Lillian you are a trip.  :2funny: :2funny: Just look at it this way. You are ready for Christmas. You have the reindeer and the christmas lights on the tree.  :2funny: :2funny: You did fine girl. Keep up the good works. Thanks everybody for your encouragement. See you this afternoon.

Spring trees.. "round 1"


I'm not comfortable with the large tree's central shadows ( Directly above the "pink" trees)   and Forgot some masking fluid on the right side of the "red tree"  Also I NOW see that the left most tree looks too much as it is in front of the red one and my "little branch" in front of the pink tree is too prominent.  " Progress NOT perfection :yippee: :yippee:
 Will go back in after it hangs for a couple of days and I collect feedback and suggestions.

My apologies to everyone, I have NOT been a great forum member the last few weeks, hope to be back on full track in a couple of days.  I DO look and I am , as always, impressed with the level of skill we all demonstrate and the growth we gain!     :thankyou: all for sharing.

Well I love it!  Especially the bark on your big tree and the slope of your hills.  I think your colors are beautiful too and I love the way you did your two pinker trees...mine looked like one tree sharing two trunks!  Thank you for sharing with us, Brian.   :)

I think your painting is really cute, Brian.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like the color of the green leaves against the mauve.  You really have a good amount of sunlight in your painting and that makes it delightful.  You did nice work on the sky, gradually lighter toward the horizon.  Also you did a nice job depicting the sloping hills.

I think using the masking fluid for blossoms takes practice.  I may try it again in the future and see if I can make my tree look more realistic.  I'm not happy with mine.

It's nice to see your paintings.  I'm glad you're finding time to put your brushes to work.

Good job, Bri.  It was a fun lesson....I really enjoyed it and looks like you did too.  Looks really great.
I know what you mean by 'picking' at your own pictures.  I finished mine, and knew exactly what I'd missed when I saw it from the counter!!  LOL  Too bad our arms aren't long enough while we are painting.
I'm trying my fifth attempt at the summer trees.  Phew.
I enjoy seeing yours and the other members paintings. They are all so good, and there's something to be learned from every one.

Brian, good going  :clap: :clap: :clap: I simply love the main tree trunk - such character!

Agree about the red tree - just fill in the gap and you should be fine. O0

Thank you everybody


Got to share this with ya all!!

Posted the painting, swapped it into the frame in the kitchen / dinning area,, left the house for a couple of hours

came back in and there .... right there underneath that big tree was the biggest pink plucked turkey I ever saw :whistle: :whistle: :yippee: :yippee:

And that branch that hangs down off the big tree looks just like a giant wishbone!!

Brian.

P.S. when I stop laughing so hard ever time I look  at the painting, I'll do the corrections and re post............But the Turkey will still be there :2funny: :2funny:

Brian, Brian, Brian.... The trunk on your main tree is marvelous. The colouring throughout is very nice, ok its better than nice. I like it.   >:D
Super job on this, I haven't seen the lesson yet but looks quite fun. That's what your painting imparts....fun.   O0
Cheers, Val
