I'm sure this one was more difficult Jenny. Just the fact you did it shows your determination. I think you have done an excellent job, a few tweaks to darken some shadows and a few bush/trees on the rock walls and you're there. Great work there, I'd be proud as punch.   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val

Jennylynn, Nice!

Don't know about you, but to me "paint along is a Misnomer.....
paint BEHIND feels more accurate   :yippee: :yippee:



had planned on a little touch up before posting, got called to supper and decided what you see is what i got :D

Olympic sport ~trying~ to keep up.  My internet kicked off at the end so I guess I'll wait to see what I missed.

More and more paint- alongs, or  paint- behinds as the case may be.   :)

 :congrats: for your bravery.  Everyone did very well!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

When I get home from Nolan and find so many paintings up on the Forum already then to me they are NOT paint behinds but paint alongs.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I take my hat off to ALL 5 that have appeared so far. Each one is different in detail and colour and that's what makes it so exciting - each one has added their own individuality and not tried to copy exactly what I had painted.

Jenny, what worries me are those 5 block spots on the top right corner. I would scrub them out as they keep turning the eye to them instead of the gorge. Other than that you did a fab job keeping up with me and the others.

I know that it was not easy, but you have to come out of the comfort zone to be able to improve. Each one has picked the salient points as THEY saw them, yet each painting is recognizable as the Rustenburg Gorge.

Well done all of you  :clap: :clap: :clap: I'm proud of you all  O0
