Beautiful work, Jennylynn!  I haven't been on the forum much to look for you and the others.  And here you are, all   doing water color painting!  You do such nice work!  The others, too!  I don't have a steady hand to do water color. :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow everyone! I've looked through this thread a few times admiring all the paintings! Amazing how much variation in mood comes through from this subject. Looks like doing this lesson would sure kick up our painting skills a few notches :D  Excellent job everyone - I'm impressed!!!
Happy painting .....

Your painting is less cluttered Jennylynn and the colours are clear and sharp. You are inspiring me to have another go - as soon as i find the pictures of Venice i took about three years ago. If you want to make any more changes - I notice the windows in the buildings have been multiplying. If you wanted to experiment you could wipe some of the furthest away ones with a damp tissue and shift them further away by almost disappearing them.

I missed the class!   :'(   It looks like you all had fun and your gondolas look terrific!   :congrats:   Everyone!
 :offtopic: I enjoyed a weekend at the college learning knife painting, (oil), then had to switch gears for my last Monday morning class.  It's been a great semester and I have some more credits in my cookie jar.   :yippee:
I'm still recovering!   :2funny:   I'm enjoying the forum and loving what I see.    :1hug: :1hug: :1hug: :1hug: 's to you all!

Off to the "construction site"..  "She-who-must-be-obeyed      " wants her kitchen done by friday and I just started tearing out the old cabnets late yesterday       


Sniff, sniff. Is that the wonderful aroma of bacon I smell?? She-who-must-be-obeyed must be fryin' bacon in that brand new kitchen of hers, eh Brian? ;)

This was my last painting session with "Artisticat", we never got around to adding the people. I have a photo of him sitting on the desk intently watching Dennis during the lesson. For some reason it will not resize, will have to try a different program and post later.


The resulting painting...


I know, no people. Perhaps I'll finish one day. The water is actually more green, this is as close as I could get the colour.

Val. . . .words cannot adequately express my sympathy for your loss. I grieve with you, deeply and sincerely.  :1hug:
 
Your gondola painting is lovely and one that will always hold fond memories for you. I think you should leave it as is, frame it and hang it in memory of that wonderful Artisticat.

Val-Thanks for that beautiful pic of Artisticat.  I love your gondolas.  Very beautiful complementary colors.  I Agree.  Just frame it as a keepsake for your joint effort and love for one another.
