It's beautiful Jennylynn-I was struggling with it as well-I'm glad I wasn't the only one.

Nice work, everyone! I'm impressed. I can't work that fast. I think I just need to absorb the lesson, watching intently the first time around. It's a fun lesson. I look forward to the replay so I can get started.

Beautiful paintings ladies! Val, I like your petal and don't worry, I have not even started mine. For me is better if I watch the class and then I am painting. I am not going to get all worked up and upset for not being able to keep pace. Dennis is to fast/quick for me  :run:  :flight: Doina

Lovely Irises so far (and part iris Val). I like Dennis' suggestion about looking at the computer to see the flower but there's a slight hitch with that when you are on-line. i quite like the mystery in following Dennis and then finding out what bit you were painting afterward.

So--was ultramarine really the only shade of blue that was used?

Everyone has done a fantastic job on their Irises. Thank you Dennis for coming back to us. I put an Indigo background on after class. In fact, if I do another (and I will), I will use the Indigo instead of the ultramarine.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: O0 O0 O0  to you all for finishing the iris painting and doing such a wonderful job. I am really impressed with what I have seen.  I will have to wait for the replay but I enjoyed watching the lesson and tried to take everything in.  Sorry that you had buffering problems Val ... aren't they the pits??  Luckily, I could hear/see but there was no section to comment or even to see who was in attendance, so I could not communicate the problem but it wasn't serious as I could see and hear the lesson as I said.

Val and Patricia--that's a real let down if you can't watch it when it is on!  Luckily we all get to see it again.
Sorry you had troubles.

Wow!!!  Dennis is going to be real proud of all you paint alongers.  :congrats:   Well done everyone!!!
Val, sorry you had problems staying with us  :1hug:  but you've done a fantastic job so far.  I'm looking forward to seeing it when you're finished.
Carol, the indigo really makes your iris pop...good choice!   O0

Thanks for saying so Bella. I'll have to post a photo of the brush I used...it actually increased my speed!  ;D

Doina, appreciate your kind comment. I don't get worked up about not keeping up...but I do get one heck of a good laugh about it  ;D   I find paintings that were done (or started as it were) during a paintalong tend to turn out reasonably well, and if I do them again...even better. Plus, believe it or not...I can actually complete a painting in a much more reasonable time than I did previously. Good thing there were no time clocks!  ::)

Karen, it always amazes me how downright nasty the painting can look halfway through...then amazingly turn into a pretty impressive piece at the end. You are doing great.  O0

Carol, I really like the indigo. Must get some of that. Beautiful rendition.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Patricia, brought back memories of Grenada! Now that was horrendous internet!  :2funny:

Thanks Lillian, I'm keeping at it.

WOW these are all fantastic paintings well done everyone it looks a bit complicated in places but I can't wait until I get to do this class. You've all captured the delicacy of the petals perfectly.  Love them all  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:
