Finally got a start on this!  :yippee: Have only been at it for FOUR HOURS, and managed to fight my way through to 52minutes of the video...  :crazy2: . Have lost the video again, so decided it's a good time to have a break and a tot of rum to soothe my frazzled nerves.  :D ;D

I really think I would have been smart if I had waited until next week and seen the mixing greens class!  :2funny:

Cheers, Val  :faint:

I must say Dennis... this was a lesson and a half!  :sweat: If I had walls, this brush would be great for the paste (wallpaper)  :tongue: I think it will be great fun for use on larger, looser type paintings. Another hurdle to overcome...BIG paintings!  :faint:

 :doh: Oh the battle with those greens! You've no idea...really looking forward to next Sunday.

Thanks much for your perusal, now go put that foot up!  :2funny:

Must add...it is a nice sky (for a change) isn't it? Pulled out my trusty butterknife for the rocks.  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Val,

I have no idea what a hake brush is, but you certainly have learned to use it well.  Great painting.

Definitely up to your high standards.

Nina, I have all of you who have posted your painting before me to thank. When the video fails, I study each one and see what is where and hopefully how you did it. So thanks for that.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
When all else fails... that's when artistic license takes over!  :heeha: The rocks just wouldn't look right...so painted them over and out came my trusty butterknife.... voila! Rocks!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

 :heeha: Jani! The trees....how many colours...how many layers?  :confused: No idea!  :2funny: But yes, I am very well pleased with my trees. The rocks were a move of desperation...I'm like Zorro with a butterknife!  :2funny:
