Hi Stoney and  :welcome:


I kind of know what you are talking about when you say you jump into difficult projects not knowing that they are difficult.  My second pastel painting was a cat, I had no clue when I started that it was hair by hair by hair lol; but found out that I love doing animal pastels and still do some along with oil painting.


Can't wait to see your paintings.

I love the Inquisitor(sp?) Cat and your Mona Lisa definitely is hiding a secret.  They all look good to me!

Thank you, kindly.  I hadn't a clue (dripping wet newbie to the paint brush world) as to the difficulty level of what I was tackling.  I was expecting a 'Cessna puddle jump" when it was an amplified version of "Apollo 13" which ended up as "Apollo 11".  I can't use the metaphors much anymore as so many wouldn't even connect Apollo with NASA.  So, it goes.

Thank you, Brandy.  I'm not sure on the title spelling, but he is a cat. That one was fun to do.  Much is learned via play.

 :welcome:  Stoney and nice to meet you. Would love to see your prior paintings. Years ago I use to write and support Many Navy personnel while on deployment. I'm a beginner in Acrylics and I have always wanted to Paint one of the Aircraft Carriers that was decomissioned ( USS America CV-66).  I'm very confident after finding the PB that I will be able to do that after I learn the basic techniques. I just finished the Tulip and Sunset with the boat and have learned soooo much in just these two lessons. It is so wonderful here at PB and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Soldiers and sailors enjoy getting mail.  Now, I suppose its more emails and video chat, for sailors, than snail mail.  Thank you for doing that.

I just saw this, so you weren't being ignored.

I don't know if you know this, but photos on military web sites aren't copyrighted.  For hull color try Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Orange.  I don't recall the ratios I used in "Tug-O-War/Chow Time Desertion".

My last ship was a DDG (Guided Missile Destroyer).  I recall, during war games, we attacked the Carrier five times.  We'd shut down all electronic emissions and reconfigure visible lighting to emulate a freighter.  We'd attack and then (snort) "run like hell" (said the Tortoise).  We were sunk three times, but knocked out the flight deck twice.

You might consider doing some very rough small sized pencil sketches to determine what you want to capture and the angle(s) and distance.  I'd be very interested in following your determination process and painting construction.

 :thankyou:  for the tips and I will sure keep them in mind. It will be awhile before starting this project of painting the Aircraft carrier and the sister ships. I purchased some classes and will do those first before attempting this task. I'm learning so much already and so happy I found the PB.
