Denise--the photo of your kitty and pic would make a lovely painting in itself. I would love to see that one! you did a great job on your roses. :painting:

Thank you Carol! I hadn't thought of painting that pic but I think you're right -- I'll move it into my "projects" file :)

Dennis, I watch the tutorial, and I would like to start the rose tomorrow. For the backgroung it is used wet-on dry with the addition of the dishwater fluid to make it more fluid?  :thankyou: Doina

Well I tested anyhow  :whistle: ! This is a great trick for wet-on dry! :o It is the best background I have ever done on this technique! And it was so easy!  :clap: Doina

I still haven't seen that lesson as yet...sounds very interesting. I've got a couple more blooms to do before the rose I think. Looking forward to seeing yours.  O0
Cheers, Val

Well, I painted my roses today. They are horrible :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: But on the bright side  ;) :
- I learn about a wet-on-dry techique, and that's a lot  :clap: :clap:
- I learn new color combinations  O0 O0
- I learn that I have to follow instructions and not keep a picture in my mind, as I like to look. That can be done second or third time around. Hard for me to follow directions   :knuppel2: :sweat:
- and so many other small things.

Val this lesson is #35, and it is on the "full video art lessons". It looks like it was on a program not long ago. I will start again tomorrow, and I'll try to do my own colors, now that I learn the technique. Once I follow Dennis instructions, I'll be able to use any colors I like. See you soon with another one.
If I would be perfect, I would not need to take this great classes. Doina

Uh-oh  :nono: Doina told a fib!  :eek: It isn't terrible.  :knuppel2: Well...the fib is, but the painting isn't.  >:D You've done very well with this. Roses are not an easy flower to do. I would say yes, you have learned a lot from this one and that's a marvellous thing. But...try as I might  :detective: I can't find terrible.

So....lighten up lady, you're doing great!  :yippee: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Hi Val and Patricia, thanks for encouragement  :thankyou:, but I feel like it is a failure. Look at the second/lower flower in the right center. There I lost my patience  >:( on darker colors, and I lost Dennis on his explanations. I told you I am not a good folower! My fuse shorts out and it happens what you see there! I was very please and happy with the upper one. Well, I'll try another one tomorrow  :painting: Doina

Doina, this is well done! I have to tell you, I didn't notice that darker part on the lower flower until I read your post (even after enlarging!). Both your flowers, background and leaves look great!! I guess it's only natural that we magnify our mistakes in our own mind :D  I do it all the time ::)

Thanks Denise, that means that I should  8) down. Anyhow, I'll try another one tomorrow. If you don't see it posted, it means that is worst than this one!  :2funny:  :2funny: Good night, Doina

Did the same thing today, Doina. I watched Dennis' daffodils last night, and thought I could strike out on my own today.  :2funny:  Well I'll be following along with the video one day soon. Course--it was all Pappy's fault. I was painting along with his radio show.

Well, here is my second rendition of "The roses". I like it better, but something is missing. Would you be so kind and critique?  :thankyou: Doina
