After getting behind with the masking fluid, not mixing enough orange, mixing more too strong, trying to cover it all and make it blend, splashing the bluey colour around. No idea what colours Dennis mixed for the dark areas, GREEN? Did Dennis just say green?   :goofy:   :eek:    :2funny:

Natalie, Jenny, Brian, Harald  :congrats: You all have done nice work!  I can't believe you can follow along and still do so well. O0

Val - I like what you've done so far!  The mountains look like it's maybe a little later in the day, or getting towards evening, with the late sun shining through! I think it will make a nice painting!  I can't wait to see the finish work!

Again, kudos to all of you that painted along! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Harald, very nicely done...and you have reflections and everything!   :clap:   :clap:

Jenny, I thank you for your confidence as mislaid as it is.   :2funny:

Natalie, just for future reference...masking fluid does come off of computer screens!  ;D

Pat, thank goodness for dark glasses,  8)  you look good in them by the way!   >:D   :2funny:

Brian, I promise you I will finish it..don't hold your breath for tomorrow. I would not want your demise on my conscience. I have got to figure out where the colours go, but first what the colours are. Grape juice? Sorry, must have splashed over from me!  :whistle:   :2funny:

Great jobs, you guys.  I'm certainly in awe for you all to be able to paint along. They are lovely, and you all did an outstanding job with the reflections.
I don't have enough room to watch, mix, paint, dry, and listen....so, thank goodness for the replays!  I'm so proud of you all....you did a super painting.  Look forward to your painting, Val. You are off to a great start.

Absolutely fantastic paintings Natalie, Jennylynn, Brian and Harald.    :clap:      Keeping up and finishing the painting is a feat in itself.  I followed along as best I could but my colours turned out horrible and need to be fine tuned for sure.  Nevertheless, I have been following along on inferior paper which I consider, my trial run and then tomorrow I will paint the picture again on better paper which is good practice for me.

Brian thanks for your message and yes, you are correct.  Keep up the wonderful work.

Standing ovation to every one of you who painted along...I think each has its own lovely character and beauty and you should all get awards for being able to keep up!  And Val, all I see with yours is that you stopped!  It's going to be just as beautiful!  Great job, everyone!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Bella, Rita, thanks much for your continued support. I may need a bridge for the next one.  ;D

Mary, if you only knew....  :2funny: After the mountain fiasco, I had no idea what colours Dennis had used so I just used the 'Mary Never Fail Recipe' ..... I fudged it!  >:D

Last evening I filled in some of the trees, (surprise, surprise) there may be hope! Hope to get a chance to do more this afternoon. I would appreciate a list of what colours Dennis used for the water...and don't say blue!  ;D

Thanks Mary. I was so astonished to get such a fast reply, that I totally forgot to thank you  :blush:

Hi everybody, I have a question referring to the tonal value of my mountains. The colours look different in real life of course. No purple at all. But the tonal value is  the same as in real life I think. Should the mountains be darker or the shadow in the top right corner? In comparison to the part in focus the mountains look quite pale, but then again when I look at the photo I see that they are pale. Is the difference in tonal value in my painting about the same as the difference in the photo? Do you get what I mean?
