 O0 O0 O0  Great job Mea and Alice.  I love seeing how we all did the same painting but yet they are all different, to me, that is exciting in itself. 


Anyway, everyone did fantastically well.  Thanks once again to Dennis for an interesting and most enjoyable lesson.

Excellent work Alice  O0 The colourings on your pebbles are great, super job on the central one (looks like sandstone). I like the background colourings.... might have to do another 'paint-over' and get rid of my pumpkin pie look!  :2funny:    Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Dear mea hamo pena;
I didn't like the sticky residue left by masking tape, so I tried the expensive 'frogtape', but,
I had the same problem with the tape lifting while I was drying parts of the painting.
I finally had to go back to the standard masking tape. (cheap)
The frogtape come in yellow or green, I used the yellow tape, I am not sure if the green
version is stronger I didn't try it.    Which one did you use?

May Lynn,

I used the yellow Frog Tape because it said it was for "delicate surfaces."  Well, I guess not.

I tried rubbing it over fabric first, like Val suggested.  Maybe my fabric was not linty enough.

Funny thing was that the tape started to lift off the paper when I used the hair dryer to dry the background, yet later when I tried to remove it, it lifted the top layer of the paper!.

I am using some paper that is not high quality, so that may be a big factor.

Thanks for telling me of your experience.  We all learn from each other.

What fun to see the variety of pebbles! I really enjoyed this one especially because, as Dennis mentioned, each pebble is like a little abstract in itself. The more I paint, the more I think semi abstract is my fave  ;D  (for now anyway.... ;) )
Thank you Dennis!
 
 
I think this could use a little more depth? Would just darkening up the shadows do the trick?  :-\

GREAT JOB ON THE PAINT ALONG GUYS!
Jennylynn, Harald, Doina, Natalie, Patricia, Mea, Alice and Denise your pebbles are lovely. Patricia, your pebbles look like they are under water! Lovely everyone!

Here are my pebbles in pretty sand!!! I left you guys and Dennis 1/2 hour before the end. I just now finished my last 5 pebbles. As you can see I love colors. Thank you Dennis!

May Lynn,  Try "Artist's Tape" from an art supplier rather than any house painter's masking tape - it is much more gentle and acid balanced for framing.  Frog tape is meant to completely seal on the edges and is activated by paint - I don't think that is really what we want.  The artist's tape is pretty expensive, but it's worth it as it comes completely up without tearing the paper.  Be sure to pull away from the painted part anyway, just in case, and don't leave it on for more than a couple of days.

Oh, Carol, your pebbles are superb!  How did you get them to look shiny (translucent??), not sure what the right word is.

Wow, they are so beautiful.
