Your reflections look great Jennylynn!  :smitten:

I had fun until the reflections-my paper was a roller coaster.  :-\  I tried lifting the house reflections out with a tissue and ended up with a square blob.  :P

Dennis I thought the speed of the class was fine-I'm not coordinated enough to respond during class.

Natalie, I like it. Why not just add some green to the that area to break up that square. That's what I would do. Nina  :flowers:

Well look at the three of you.....our very own 3 Musketeers! AND every one a master of the secret PB colours!!   >:D

Fantastic work, all of you. I think after watching Dennis, it will surely take some practice to get that reflections technique down pat. Excellent job guys.  :clap:   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val

Hold the presses! Did no one mention 'professional' painters are to post elsewhere?   >:D  Just kidding, about the pro painters posting here...they're allowed.   ;D

Exceptional work here Brian. Really beautiful. I have only one minor thing to say, I think your tallest tree needs a bit more stuffing on the left side...just to fill that void a bit.

Brilliant!   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val

Back here after having supper and I'm so impressed with the four of you!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Jennylynn, Natalie, Harald and Brian, you are the champions!   :congrats:  Your paintings are awesome!

Each of you are progressing wonderfully in your watercolor painting skills.   :yippee:

Hi all.  I was able to watch the Lake Hayes Lesson but did not have time to prepare for the paint along.  I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation by Dennis.  I now have some time to actually sit down and paint but I can't seem to find the video lesson for the re-watch.  Since I am new to this site, it's probably right in front of me.  Can anybody help? :'(
