Well, here is my rendition, since I couldn't find any PDF handouts, decided to use one of my own photographs.  Since more bushes covered the right hand side of the car, I had to wing drawing the missing half of the car, so many alterations had to be made when things didn't look right! :2funny:  I am no petrol head.  What do you think, or where am I wrong?BBC embed code    
hope this works this time, thank you Val for fixing up my last gaffe!! :clap:

Still no picture, I copied and pasted the brackets and all, do you think it is an iPad problem?

Fig,

Love the old vehicle.  Great rusty patches.

Two concerns, both should be very quick fixes:
1. The top of the fender on the right needs to stand out just a bit more from the mountain.

2. There needs to be something at the top of the car to indicate the rounding of the roof.  You have it over the door, maybe just extend a narrow strip across to the other side. Unless, it is a convertible with the top down!

Oh, this is a really fine work!  Great vibrant color.

To get to the pdf handouts - when you go to watch the video itself, scroll down, the handouts are below the video

Thanks all for your feedback.  Mea, will attend to the fender and change the colour of the rounding ( it is white so not very visible from the sky.  Also the rounding of the back wheel, tks Nolan.  Am beginning to think I have lost it, but there was definitely no Pdf handout at the bottom of the video!  :thankyou: :thankyou: :fight: :crazy2: :confused:

Just have that sneaky feeling that this attempt to post my painting will fail again  :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: but perhaps some bright spark can retrieve it for me.  Does anyone know if it is an iPad peculiarity?  Lots of work this one, but thoroughly enjoyable! ;DBBC embed code

Fiona, I think I'm seeing a pattern here ......  :detective:    When you go to get the BBC Code, look to the right and there will be some letters and numbers contained inside square brackets. If you click beside them in the box, they will be highlighted. Then use your 'control C' and 'contol V' to copy it into your post.  Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you still have any difficulties.  :)
Cheers, Val
