Harald I also love your 2nd painting :clap: :clap: :clap: Your rocks are much more realistic. You are doing well lately O0

Carol, This one has a character completely on it's own. An excellent example of just how to make a painting completely different than the reference - no copyright issues this way and still end up with a good painting :clap: :clap: :clap: Just blue up the tidal pool and your painting will be OK O0 Looking forward to see the actual one you are going to paint :flowers:

Harald,  :thankyou: so much for the paint comparison. I am amazed in the variation of the different tints of the same colors. Both paints produce brilliant colors, but they produce different hues.  Excellent 2nd painting, by the way!!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Carol, I love your hake brush painting!  :clap: :clap: :clap: Your rocks are superb!!  :smitten:
Cheers,
Jani

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Very nice re-do Harald.  I am shocked to see that Cotman colours are more vibrant than the proper W&N paints.  Just goes to show that sometimes the cheapies are just as good or even better colour-wise.


Carol, I really like your rendition for it has a "calm" feeling about it.  Good job.  Patricia

Having used both of the above paints, it just comes down to how much water. Where the difference comes in is the longevity and resistance to fading.

Carol, a nice picture where you`ve gone your own way and made it your own. Impressive.
Thank you everyone for the nice comments. It sounds like music. 
I find it interesting to compare the differetn paint qualities and this exempel clearly shows that there are other things than the qualities of the paint that determines the end result.
I like the Artist quality best but belive that cotman also is fully applicable.

Soooo, the trouble began when I decided to make the template poster size.  And it went downhill from there.  It just got to the point I was laughing out loud to myself no less wondering what Dennis would think if he had a view of my new technique.  Sorry, Dennis...I tried...but something tells me the hake brush is not for me!  But I had such fun so that's that and now on to the next experiment!

Mary, just because you did not give up here's a big  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Large parts of the painting has been well done, specially the figures.

My main concern is that you have the template tilted too much downwards to the left. That can be seen relative to the top line of the painting. The horizon line should be completely horizontal as now it looks like the water is sloping.

General note to all:
Remember, mistakes are all part of the learning curve and without them we will not grow properly. They are but stepping stones to a higher level (pun) O0

Come on Mary...that's not half bad  O0 I just about go  :goofy: just thinking about painting something that big. My biggest board is 1/2 imperial .... I have it stretched and ready to go. No idea what I'm going to put on it yet...  :eek:

Wait 'til I get back and have a crack at mine...then we can both sit and :2funny: 'til we  :'( !

Cheers, Val

Dennis - thank you - and believe me, I wanted to!  What I SHOULD have done was looked more at the sketch once it was transferred and THEN say, oh, you better rethink this!

Thank you...figures always scare me...I have a very hesitant hand when I approach them for some reason.

It's funny how I never even saw that UNTIL I photographed it - which is not an uncommon phenomenon to me at all.  I think this one demands it to be a do-over and not as a poster either!  Thank you so much for your treasured expertise...I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.  Take good care, Dennis and thank you again.

Oh, Val, we'd need a carton of tissues if we did.  I have plenty of poster size paper for you as soon as you settle on your subject...maybe a few mountain ghosts??  Thank you, darlin'.  As always.

Love your paintings, they look just great and i think you have all done an amazing job. I have a Hakebrush but seldom use it, wished i had the possibility to buy this lesson so i will know how to paint with it, well some other day ^_^. Looking at your paintings i am really surprised to see what is possible with this brush.

JennyLinn a belated  :bday: , i had my birtday in the same week ^_^.

Not painted after the Dragonfly, had some other rhings on my mind, but hopefully in a few weeks i will try it again. For now i have to deside if i go for the operation or not, i just have this weekend  for it...operate of=r live with how my wrist is right now, well at last i can still paint ^_^.

Mary, I love your painting with those bright vivid colours!   :smitten: :clap: :clap: :clap: You're very brave to go bigger.  I think the composition is so lovely, it deserves a larger size.


I'm hoping I can get on the live class tomorrow.  I have Adobe Reader installed on my laptop now but I can't seem to see proof that the Adobe Flash Player is there as no icon is showing.  It's telling me I have it successfully installed.  I wonder if it's in the Adobe Reader??? :confused:   I'll ask Mr. Google and if all else fails, I'll just ask Ray.  :) :angel:



Riya, so glad to see you here.   :1hug: I'm glad you can still paint.  As for the surgery, it sounds like it's a major decision as to whether you want to have it or not.  Whatever you decide, I  :pray: it's the best for you.
