Well, I was able to kind of keep up with Dennis. Bellow is my rendition. My darkest green color on the watercolor pencils was not dark enough. It looks that the 24 pcs Derwent I have is the standard artist, not specifically for nature. Well, we'll adapt and now I can play with them and learn the color combinations.  :sweat: Doina

Beautiful Natalie, your background is exceptional.  O0 Rusty? I think not.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well Lillian, I guess I'll see what other bits I've missed once the pdf is out. Still, was fun. Really enjoyed it.

Jenny, 'artist's license'!  :2funny:

Great job Doina  :clap: :clap: :clap: My set of pencils is Cretacolor Marino. I guess I'll see how my greens work out! Apparently there are different sets for the type of painting you do. Landscape, Marine...etc.
I got these because they were on sale...plus the only ones available in the eastern caribbean!!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Thanks for the nice comments. I believe that everyone that paints one of Dennis classes learns and in his/her way to become an accomplished watercolorist. As for the greens I started to move my brush from the dark green to blue and ochre. it helped. Now I have to play with them and make a list of color combinations!  :thankyou: again, Doina

I really enjoyed this class as I have't been able to paint in two weeks so felt like a newcomer.  I got frustrated for my colours never turn out as vibrant as Dennis' but I guess we are using different paints.   Here is my paint-along.  Patricia

Well, folks you all did well with the paint-along

It's amazing how all the paintings are alike, but so different.

I noticed that Doina and NCWren's paintings appear to be framed and matted.  Is that for real or is an electronic frame format that you use?

I love the gingerbreading along the porch roof line.  Dennis picked a nicely detailed piece for you folks.

Harold, is yours more impressionistic?

Val, catch up, girl.

I hope I am free next week to follow you folks in oil.  This looks like such fun!

Great work, everyone.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Well done Val, you have made a good start and I know the end result will be superb. Lovely paintings Harald, Jennylynn, Natalie and Doina. I hope I haven't missed anyone. You all did so well.   It felt good to be back painting after a two week lay off.  Patricia

It does not show rust on the edges, just on the roof!!! Great painting. All of us have problem with matching Dennis colors. Yes, it is the fact that we do not have the same paints, but ... we do not have the same experience! can you tell me what is a "bit" of red, or blue or whatever. His life time experience gave him "that quantity" by instinct now. With time all of us will improve Patricia. Welcome back to the group!
Mea, mine is a real frame and mat. I usualy go to Joann fabrics when they have sales, or when I have coupons and buy frames and mats. I always have 2 or 3 in my closet! I use only one size 11x14. My printer does not print more than 8.5x11 template! Thanks for the kind words, Doina

Dennis, What a beautiful painting you created.  I arrived half way in and had to use my proportional divider to draw on a larger piece of paper--so the poor thing is out of wack.  Then after laughing at the mess, I just did something playful with the crazy colors and background.  Please forgive me.  I'll follow the rules next time.  Wow all you paint a longers did such a fabulous job and you kept up.  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks for the quick reply, Doina, regarding the mat and frame.

What a smart idea to "standardize" everything so you can give your work a classy presentation when you get it uploaded for us to see.

I never cease to be amazed by what I learn from PB-ers.

You did very well Patricia. I wouldn't call this one of Dennis' 'slower' classes!  ::) I wouldn't worry overmuch about using light washes, when I first started that is about all I could get from the cheap paints I had. As long as you learn the various techniques, you can always change up to another brand of paint that you'll be happier with. Focus on the techniques for now, it will pay off in the long run.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

LOLOL...I wrote a whole great list on your wonderful paintings.........and it's somewhere out in cyber space!!
I loved all the paintings, and am so happy we all have our own technique and style. I'd hate to look at the same exact pic every time!  LOL  They are all terrific.
