Hello everybody

Here is my effort at Lesson 39 - Steamboat.

Let me know what you think.

Steamboat at Lake Wakatipu.

Batman.
I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Batman! your mountains and steamboat look great! Those snow toppings are very realistic and, the ripples/trails in the sea look like that boat has some powerful pedlars!
Well done Batman  :clap: :clap:

I think I'm done...  :-\  A few things I'd like to change, but when it comes to reworking dry paint...  :hang: I'm doomed. Just end up with a field of cauliflowers bigger than Claude's berry patch!  :heeha: AND still have the hard lines I wanted to remove. So best to leave it...  ???  right?   :whistle:

Cheers, Val

Amazing mountain Batman   :heeha:   :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:
I'm not 100% happy with how mine turned out, doing my best not to destroy what's there, so I put it away. Dennis, I think this has been the hardest thing in the past two years....leaving it alone as you said!   :sweat:  :faint:
Cheers, Val

Thank you Lynn. I still want to pull it out and 'fix' it  :eek:
After all the times I told Pat to sit on his hands and not fiddle...guess who?  :2funny:

Wow, there's a whole mountain of Mountains!  I'm so far behind on the posts, that I don't think I have time to comment on each one.  I'll just say that I didn't see anything that I didn't like.  Each the same, yet so different.  You guys rock!  I am just :envy:!  Can't wait to get back into the swing of things so I can at least participate!
Good job everyone! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well, here is my second rendition of steamboat.  I wanted to practice sky and water some more but in my focus on those spots, forgot to mask the boat and ended up painting it the opposite of the actual  :o  Oh well, it was the exercise I was after anyway ;D
