Nolan if you don't give us the replay I am going to  :'(.   I don't mind paying for the replay as it is worth every cent.

Nolan, all the classes I have taken thus far are excellent  :clap: :clap: :clap: , but I must commend you on the Big 5 Series... the Rhino was absolutely A-W-E-S-O-M-E  :yippee: , you have done a brilliant and thorough job on the teaching method (as always)... but this truly takes the cake! I am in awe   :not_worthy:

Great class Nolan, some great techniques and learned so much, will have to look at the replay over and over.

It buffered for me towards the end and I eventually left the class, would love to see the final product.  :)

Nolan & Dennis,

Your Rhino portrait was amazing! Looks so cool! You do fabulous work and teach very well. I'm grateful I have the opportunity to observe the class and to have found the Paint Basket! May God Bless you and Dennis for your talents and your selfless ways!

I am looking forward to the next class!    :clap:

I am glad everybody enjoyed the class yesterday.

Unfortunately the buffering problems came from my end. I am not sure if there was a bottleneck because I was playing a video for nearly two hours or my internet connection slowed for a while, but I could see my broadcast queue indicator showing that it couldn't send fast enough at one point. That is why I stopped the video at one point to try and clear the queue.

As far as the chat box is concerned, I was pretty miffed because we have cloud hosting on the PBTV website which is supposed to ramp it's resources up and and down as needed and it clearly didn't, so the hosting company is gonna get an earful from me today  :knuppel2:

Nolan....what is the brand of medium you used for the Rhino? Is it the same as the wall board repair stuff?  Spackle, we call it here.
Thanks....I'd like to try to tackle this this winter when the days are sooooo long.  Also, what size canvas did you use?
Thanks, again.

Bella, if I caught it right, I believe it's called 'texture paste'.

Bella -

I'm going to channel Nolan for a moment...lol.  Yes, he used a 16 x 20 and it was called texture paste but here in the US, it's regular spackle.  :)

 :yippee: :clap:    :clap:   :clap: Wow! Had to stay up to finish watching the Rhino replay.  My hat is off to you.  Never saw anything like it before :yippee:   :smart: 

I watched to see if I could do anything like that (Nope) but it gave me ideas for smaller projects.  Thanks !  :thankyou:

I couldn't believe the life-like hide but that eye looked like it was aware of you looking at him. Very unsettling. Awesome work.   :painting:

Hello Sharon and,  :welcome: on to Paint Basket ;)
It looks like you have enjoyed the Rhino class and, taken inspiration for future projects. That's how amazing Nolan & Dennis are, teaching techniques to use in other projects.  :yippee:
