Ok... I watched the bubbles video which was excellent, but didn´t quite get me where I wanted to go, so....   :detective: I went on the lookout to see what else might push me in the right direction. Then... voila!  :heeha: I found an oil lesson on painting seashells on the beach which had bubbles and foam!  :yippee:
Have watched it twice now, and I think I now know what I need to do.  O0   Brilliant!  So as an aside to anyone having an issue with figuring out how to accomplish a particular technique, don´t be afraid to look into the other mediums for an answer. You may just find what you need.
How clever of  :smart: Dennis and  :smart: Nolan to have created such a vast library of lessons and techniques that cross over to all of the various mediums. Bloody Brilliant!!!  :not_worthy:     :congrats:     :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

I´ve completed two layers so far, without totally losing the underlying layers.  :sweat:      I´m thinking it will take another 3 maybe 4 to finish the effect. It really is quite exciting! PLUS...no cauliflower worries!!!  :2funny:

Bad news... I binned it a couple of weeks ago.  :'(   At first I berated myself as I usually keep the not so lovelies as a lesson learned. However! This one had me so bamboozled I actually snapped the board in two.  :blush:   I found it gave me a rather perverse pleasure  >:D and am feeling much better now!  :yippee:     :2funny:   Shall be starting a new adventure in about a months time. Has anyone ever painted an iceberg before?    :goofy:    :faint:
Cheers, Val

So you had a Jimmy Hendrix moment. I am sure it felt good.

<--what Bill said
I have had several students paint them though. You have to look carefully at the tonal values and colours as they can have subtle variations O0 :gl:

Aww, Val, been there, done that.   :(  I would imagine painting an iceberg would be about getting all the light and subtle colors right.  Pretty intense.  What a fun challenge though!


Bill, you always make me laugh.  I also tried to paint an ice cube, it turned out well but I can't post it as it melted. :'(

 :doh:   Oy!!!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:    So pleased to see humour is alive and well. Don´t ever change.  :knuppel2:    :2funny:

I found a set of ¨Ocean Blues¨ online and figured that would be a good place to start. As usual, available in US that will ship to Canada, but not MX. Boy do I know how to pick my countries or what?!  :faint:   Anyway, having them sent to Canada, and a friend is bringing them down later this month.I have been digging about and there seems to be a rather strong opinion on using violets.  :confused: Trying to decide if I should chuck in another order or stick with the blues I have coming and the few turquoises I have. I suppose I could try mixing some violets from the purples (mostly darker) I have. Any opinions or am I overthinking the whole thing? Chances are I won´t be able to see the difference anyway. Right...I´ll just stick with the blues and what I have.Thanks guys, always great to have someone about to chat things through.!  :heeha:    ;D

Cheers, Val

Just match the colours on the reference and you will be okay, don't overthink it O0

Thanks Nolan, I do seem to be overthinking a lot nowadays. Will take your advice and work as close as I can with what I have.
Breathing easier already.  ::)
