I guess i'm not ready for this lesson.  :'( After the blue tit class, my ego had risen. But now its crawling on the floor. :faint: Look at this paint, what a ugly mountain. The clouds are crying to me  :doh:. I will try to finish this lesson but I'm not hopeful from the result.
The paint is wet and it is very difficult to give effect. I will wait for it to dry a little and I'll do it again

remember that you are now learning whole new techniques. You can't expect to just master them instantly. You need to be patient with yourself and give yourself time to get used to the new techniques.

Remember when you learned to ride a bicycle you probably first started off with a 3 wheel bicycle before progressing to side wheels, then 1 side wheel before you were able to ride without falling.

You must allow yourself to fall because that is how you learn. O0

Belma you are doing fine. Be patient with yourself and take as much time as you need. You can take that as gospel from someone who is still trying to do just that!  :whistle:      :run:       :2funny:
Cheers, Val

I finished the mountains. Did it happen? I forgot to paint the shadows of the fences :eyesclosed:. I could not do the clouds.  :( Do you have any suggestions for me? This was my hardest lesson. 

And when I finished, the canvas fell on me.  :pullhair: :doh: but i have done it. no problem.

Hi I  like your mountains, however your house looks a bit too small.

Lovely scene. I think it needs cast shadows from the house, trees etc ...

Belma, you have done very well.


If you accident is still there, use some turps on a clean brush, brush lightly over it lifting off the white paint and then dab on the painting with kitchen towel paper to get rid of the wetness.


For the clouds, Nolan did a lesson on painting clouds. I highly recommend that you watch it. https://paintbasket.com/shop/introduction-to-landscapes-skies-and-clouds-in-oil/ Important to have a base color, shadow and highlight.  Put your clouds maybe one before the other and not in a row, they will also not all be the same size. Work with a light touch.

Give your trees and house shadows and then come show again, you will see, just small tweaks make  a huge difference. Your mountains looks awesome. :clap:

great job Belma :clap: :clap: :clap:

You have got some good practice with this painting. Landscapes do have a LOT of techniques you need to master in order to paint them well so don't be too hard on yourself - you can't expect to instantly master all these new skill, it takes practice. Even I am still learning my landscape painting skills. O0

Your clouds have the basics in. What you want to do however is make each cloud a different shape. Large clouds at the top as they represent close by and smaller as you get closer to the horizon as that represents far away.

Your shadows are also too light, as mentioned by the others. Just make them darker by darkening up against the object then fading lighter away from the pbject O0

You are doing great, keep it up :cheering:
