Well Val, it's a lot better than I would have done without being able to see what Dennis was doing!  Really!  Good for you to not give up!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great job, Jennylynn.  I don't think you could improve on it if you took your time.  You are so good!!!    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Val, you sure amaze me.  You've done so well!   :congrats:

I was watching as best I could, had to take time out to prepare supper now and again, so wasn't much help.  Sorry!

What a great class!  I'm looking forward to getting back into the watercolors.

Thanks Jenny....but I didn't have the template...my printer died. No template, no photo. I tried to draw it as I went along, I see I missed the nails and the snap on the chain. While you lot were busy painting your bricks, I was trying to draw them really fast and still finish painting the chain.  :2funny: Lloyd just shook his head and kept reading.  :2funny: I was talking to myself, the computer, and everybody listed on the screen!  :D  :2funny:

Between running up and down stairs for masking fluid, sponges, hairdryer, drawing and painting..this was a workout!  :excercise:

Great fun...I won't do that again! Not without my template!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Thank you for your kind words Lillian. I'm afraid nothing could have helped.  ;D


Dianne, you were better off not seeing the goings on...it would have scared Frankenstein!   :faint:   :2funny:

Wow, you two!!
Jenn....you have really progressed to an awesome artist.  That is so outstanding!!   :clap:  Terrific.

Val...what a great job for what you were 'dealt' with.  You did a super job from the chat box.  The colors on your wood and chain are great. We weren't able to communicate very clearly for the plaster-brick side. Sorry about that, but you did very well for what you had.  Good girl.

Bella you are too kind. I thankyou for aiding and abetting my crime against art!  ;D  I still am having trouble lifting out highlights. Sooo, I painted a few dark spots and it seems ok...  :whistle:
