Excellent, Louisa :clap: :clap: :clap:  Be very careful on not always making the background too dark. You've lost the contrast of the building to the background.

Thank you Danielle and Dennis. I started the old castle and when I read your comment Dennis I looked at it and realised that my background is very dark again. I will have to re-do it again, but not at the moment, it's winter by us and both Ben and I are flat on our backs in bed with the flue. Cannot wait to start again. Love you guys. :hug: :hug:

Louisa, I do hope you and Ben are both well and fit by now.  :excercise:

Nice work, just keep an eye out on those values!  :detective:    ;)
Cheers, Val

Sorry to hear that you are under the weather Louisa.  You guys are certainly experiencing a cold winter.  Lovely work!

You've done a really good job on what I remember was a difficult painting - mastering values is tough! Sorry you're feeling ill - where do you live that it's winter? We're gearing up for 100+ temps this week here!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you Val, Jill and Sharon, Ben and I are up and about again thank you, but unfortunately Suzy our African Grey died this morning of pneumonia and her kidneys gave in. Sharon we are in South Africa or shall I say dark Africa for at the moment we are in darkness, luckily we have a very big generator. :hug: :hug: :hug:

I'm so sorry for the loss of Suzy - losing a pet is always so sad. May her memory forever be a blessing...and glad you're both feeling better...

Sorry to hear of Suzy's passing. I love the African Greys, such clever birds.  :'(

Glad you and Ben are both doing well.  O0

Ryan took a long time with this one. He didn't have any masking fluid so tried a few other ideas but without much success. he says it didn't turn out as well as he wanted it too, but it's OK  :)

Ryan,

You did a good job on this painting.  Love how you did the roofs.  Have a realistic worn look.

The black decayed areas on the house seem too artificial.  They need to blend into the wood better.

You are making good progress.  Hope you enjoy the lessons as much as we enjoy watching to see what you are going to do next.
