Well done Jenny and I'm glad to hear that you will continue to paint along.  It is challenging but I think I have improved a lot since I have been painting along because colour mixing is becoming much more instinctive.

Hello Dennis,

I hope it isn't too late to show you my work. I wasn't home to attend the class. So I got the copy two days ago and got no time to make it before to day.
I can't beleive how your students can paintalong (so fast) it took me 5 hours to paint it and with much difficulties  ???
I hope you'll give me your comments and advices because I need a professor, I'm a selfmade painter practicing watercolour painting for only 1 year. From the beginning I have been searching for classes without any success, and finally ...  :yippee: find the paint basked link  :clap: I want you to know how glad I am to be one of your students.
I can't wait to get your comments and I :thankyou: for your great job.
Tina.
Tina

Wow!  Tina, you did a super nice job painting the rocks.

You do very nice painting.   :congrats:

I would never know you've only been painting for one year and without a lot of coaching.

We can post a painting any where, any time.  There is no such thing as being late.

I'm way behind in the watercolor lessons, so you will see me painting some oldies real soon.

I'm a slow painter and haven't tried to paint along with Dennis in the class.  Last class, I was ready to try a paint along but we were about to have a thunder storm and I thought I would have to shut my computer down, so I didn't start.

I'm like you.  It takes me at least 3 times longer than Dennis to complete a painting.  He always says "slow now, fast later".  It comes with practice so I understand.  Anyway, I don't mind being slow.  I enjoy every minute.

Hi Lillian,

 :thankyou: for your kind comments. I'm very new with watercolours but I have to say that I already made some paintings with oil (in the years 2004, 2005, 2006) also without any help, just trying and trying and trying again till getting something that pleased me. After that I went to an other technic: digital art and made some interesting works.
Last year during some holidays in Canada I thought it should be of a good idea to paint the beautifull landscapes serrounding me there, and that's how I started with watercolours  ::) which I thought was easier to carry with and handle while traveling.
I love painting and from my childhood dreamed to have enough time to practise. But you know how life is going: getting maried, having children, working hard and no time for ourselves    :'( till retired and the children on their own. Now  :yippee: I have plenty of time to spend and do what I like most ... painting. And above all I'm getting classes, a kind teacher and lovely friends  :smitten:
 :hug:
Tina.
Tina

Hi everone,

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Like your rocks Batman. one suggestion. I think I would add some darker shades to the front trees in the lower right and left corners. Just a thought. You are doing a great job.  O0 O0
