Oops! I just booked the lessons thinking they were oil painting lessons!  ???  I'm not ready for water colour yet!

Hi Dennis,

Any idea what colours you will be using? Or am I being too eager?  ::)
Kind regards,

RA

I tried to paint along with Dennis, it`s rather fun to try. I`m absolutely not satisfied with the result but I still choose to wiew it. If one shows up more failed images is the potetials for improvement enormous.
Regards Harald

Harald, you deserve a medal just for the attempt!   :clap:   :clap:  I don't know how you keep up and still produce a reasonable painting...I shudder to think what I'd do!   :eyesclosed:

You are showing good movement in the water, and overall I think you've done very well. I'm sure Dennis will be pleased.   O0
Cheers, Val

Harald,  :congrats:  You're so brave to attempt painting along!

You did very well!  Dennis will be delighted to see that someone painted along with him.

 :congrats: Harald. You did well  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just soften up the tops of each of the mini-waterfalls". The tops don't have sharp edges because it has a rounding as it flows over the rocks.

This painting looks deceptively easy but to get the "feel and look" of flowing water takes a lot of practice. It will get better as we start the waterfalls in earnest. All who do the paint along with me have my admiration  :flowers:
