You aced it Val! I think you and I follow the same pace...slow but sure. :clap: I just love these pebble pictures. Everyone has created amazing paintings.

Retta, like you, I've never had problems removing tape using the hair dryer. Until, that is, I used a paper that was soft and textured. It lifted the paper despite careful technique as I removed the tape. I think the problem is the paper. Some won't tolerate tape. From now on I will test the paper first!

I swear Judie, sometimes if I went any slower....I'd be taking the paint off!  :2funny: This was a really fun lesson to do, but also very challenging, at least for me.  :sweat:   I'll tell you though, it would have been a lot easier slinging that paint if I hadn't taken the masking fluid off first!  :heeha:    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Dennis ... you have put the biggest smile on my face, grinning like a Cheshire Cat!  ;D No that's a lie... I'm quite giggling with euphoria  :2funny: (Just to let you know, I never giggle  ;) )

Tough as this was for me, I learned a great deal from this lesson. If you can't make things look right...add some dark stuff and bags of water!  :2funny:     :jk:
Thank you Dennis, you've shown me that I can do this. I can paint beautiful things.  :-*
Cheers, Val

Bella,

Thanks for the info on the green painters tape.

I think that my problem was the paper I used.  I don't want to use my limited  stash of good paper on lessons.  Saving that for the real thing.

Bravo, Val!  Your pebbles painting deserves a standing ovation, but since we don't have a smiley that stands and claps:  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

 All this talk about painter's tape makes me wonder. I've used the yellow Frogtape for a long time with no problems. It comes off clean, no tearing, leaves a clean line, and I don't have to use a hair dryer as I lift it off--although I do lift off the tape slowly to make sure it doesn't rip.  I use Canson paper, the blue series, which is not an expensive paper, too. I can say, though, that the edges around my painting are very dry before I lift off the tape.  In fact, I think the directions on the Frogtape say to wait until the paint is completely dry before lifting it off.  If your paper is still pretty wet (namely, the paper underneath the tape, not the painting itself), any kind of tape is going to tear all the way through to the bottom. I suppose, though, that what works for one person may not work so well for the next.

Cheers,
Jani

Jani,

I read what you had to say about the yellow frog tape.  I will experiment some more with it.  Maybe my painting was too wet when I removed it.

Thanks - very helpful info.

That is one thing I miss here in Guatemala....don't see the caribbean pumpkins here. Loved those roasted with a bit of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  :licklips: Now I'm hungry!   ;D
Cheers, Val

I didn't follow this live, but did it several days later. I thoroughly enjoyed this lesson, now I must go back and continue with other beginning lessons.

I learned a lot about glazing color. :)

Peggy,

Nice, nice, nice pebble painting.  The detail on the stones is so well done.  I think we had to add more shadowing to our pebble paintings, though.

I think you are a lot like me in that you seem to like to control your use of water.
