Wow...Nina n Jenny....Bravo.  Outstanding!  Jen, I can't believe you kept up with Dennis...Wow.  I was breathless just trying to take notes!!  Your water drops are great, and the colors of your roses are beautiful. Your background is lovely. I like it.   :flowers:
Nina...your roses are beautiful. I put the waterdrops video on the w/c chat.  I'm not too hot on them either.
Beautiful painting....I like the background.   :flowers:

Nina - nice job on the roses! :congrats:  I can't believe you could keep up with Dennis, he works so fast!  I commend you for doing that! :clap: :clap:  I hope one day to do a paint-along. 

I know I'm going to be scared to try those waterdrops.  I think I'll have to practice some first!

I can't wait to try using dish soap on a background, just to see what happens!

You ran a marathon with Dennis, Nina.  I don't know how you did it.

Your roses are lovely and so well done!

Beautiful background!  I must try the dish soap. 

 :congrats:   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well done, Nina  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just look how beautiful your background is  O0

Yep, unfortunately with the initial problem we had with the computer I had to rush it a bit to keep within the scheduled time. I'm proud of the two of you.  O0

Dennis my head was spinning trying to keep up with you.  :2funny: :2funny:
That's why there is a replay  ;) O0  :flowers:

Just wondering what happened to the others who normally add their paintings soon after the class?

WOW!! thanks everybody for your nice comments. Much appreciated.
Dennis the reason why no one else put their paint a longs on here was because they are still passed
out  on the floor.  :2funny: :2funny:
I was spinning but did not pass out.  :2funny:

Bella I saw the video for the waterdrops that you put on. And I bookmarked it. Thanks. I will have to practice those also.
Nina  :flowers: :hug:

Well.......................the dish soap worked great.....BUT....I may have to stretch a new paper!  I have more 'hills n dales' on my paper with the mix. It will be a real challenge to keep the paint in the right place.   :2funny:
Anyone else have this problem?  I've dried it with the dryer, now I'll wait for awhile and see if 'room temperature' helps.
Hmmmm.....new problems....keeps you on your toes!   :fight:

Nina your roses are FANTASTIC, they look natural, transparent, delicate and soooo beautyful   :clap:  :clap:  :clap:
To make mine I needed many hours and find it very difficult  :(  I don't like the result  :'(
I also got some drama by droping water on my paint  :confused:  and to hide them I've add 4 more drops on the stains.
The only think I like is the background made with dish soap it makes the background looks as parchment  :) :thankyou: Dennis I like the effect and will use it later again.

Thanks Lynn, Bella, Mary, much appreciated.
Thanks Tina. I think your roses are fine. Remember roses are all different colors. I really like the small one in back. It is very delicate looking.  You even did the waterdrops. I did not do them. So give yourself a pat on the back.   O0 O0 :clap: :clap:
