Thanks Cath, the lighting helped a lot.  I think it will be good to use for a shadowbox also.  I have not attempted this yet but I will soon enough.

 :heeha:   Believe me Ginger, when I was on the boat   :boat:    I would have died and gone to heaven to have that space.  :cloud9:   I think it is a great setup for now. It doesn´t take a lot of room to paint a masterpiece... just perseverance.   O0
Cheers, Val

Thanks Val, it is really perfect and all I need for now.  I am fortunate in that before I moved, I was able to aquire much of the tools and equipment.  Now I am in a furnished trailer without much room for my things so I decided to turn this small space into a "work of art" no pun intended...

I need some help with what to do.  I am painting the boathouse and am having trouble painting the water reflections because I have lost the tooth to my canvas, it has dried white paint on it that I used to cover the other colors that soaked that I painted incorrectly.  I thought that I could sand it off and now it is a slick canvas.  Now I have no idea what to do as I can not get the paint to perform correctly when trying to blend the colors in the water.  I hope I can fix it.

all I can think of is to use a soft brush, then lay the paint down with the side of the hairs instead of the tip in a more impasto style

I will give it a try and see what I can do with it.  Now I see that all the recommendations to prime and sand down your canvas's is not such a good idea. I think my mountains and boat house look pretty good, so I hope I can fix it. Thanks Nolen.

I never prime and sand - the canvasses come pre-primed and I find if you sand the canvas is too smooth so the paint slips :crazy2:

Yes, that is pretty much what I found.  I was able to get a layer of paint down, not what I want but now I am just going to let it dry and see what else I can do with it.  I may end up painting it again when I get the technique for the water reflection down.  I should have taken the Water Reflection course first.  It is a shame but a great lesson, none the less.

It is an acrylic class, so still post it in the acrylic thread in order to keep the same paintings together. Just mention in your post that you worked in oil. The post you are looking for is HERE O0
I look forward to seeing your painting :heeha:
