Looking for a good subject Val.  My husband says I can paint the house, however with a limited palette of cream lol

Thank you Dennis I always appreciate your critique.  Cannot begin to tell you how fortunate I feel to have the opportunity to learn for you.

 :offtopic: Ok, this is a bit off topic....but Jill, how do you feel about boat bottoms?  :whistle:   If I can find enough left over paintpots around the yard...you may have a few colours to play with. I'll even get you a roller!  :heeha:
  :boat:    ;D
Cheers, Val

 :wave: Hey Brian!   Are you using the masking tape or did you find the transparent one? I printed out the template today....must finish my passion flower first.

Thank you Brian.

Val, I'm a fast learner.  I'll paint the boat.  The bonus will be time in the Caribbean.

With regard to the tape used.  I did the skyline using scotch magic tape.  It was a pain as it torn into pieces as I was removing it.  However,  I found some scotch removable tape at Utrecht this week.  It comes in a blue box.  It works great!

 :eek: Um .... it is finished.  :eyesclosed: I had to do something a little differently from everyone so far. I had to use my usual tape ...  :sweat: ... can't see through it. So had to improvise a bit. It seems to have worked ok, will have to wait until tomorrow to get a photo ... but I did it!  :clap: AND ... it looks GOOD!!!  :heeha:    :yippee:
Cheers, Val

Did you find the changes? Had to use regular masking...couldn't see the lines.  :confused:    :idea: Used waterproof ink...so I suppose you could say it is a line and wash. Seems to have worked ok other than I think I have lost some of the aerial perspective due to the black lines. Don't seem to really notice it that much from a distance so I think it worked out ok.  O0   What do you think?

Cheers, Val
