I just completed this lesson.  Very in depth and loads to learn, thank you Dennis.  I unfortunately messed up the paper trying to clean a spot of dropped color.  I used a Mr Clean sponge and my paper shredded..But, the important thing is I did the flowers and completed the lesson. (I even made it worse after taking this photo! ) :crazy2: Yikes, oh well, chalk this one up to practice.  Comments and suggestions appreciated!

 :doh:   Shame I didn´t get to this earlier! I´d have told you it was an excellent go... then when you came back and said you´d mucked it up... I could have played at being Dennis and told you, ¨When I tell you it´s excellent, DON´T touch it!!!   :knuppel2:     :2funny:   Would have been so much fun to turn the tables on someone else!  :2funny:
Your blending and shadings look really good MaryLou, but don´t touch the next one until after we see it!   :nono:      :1hug: :2funny:
Cheers, Val

You will notice on my original photo, right side just above last petal, I had ruined the paper with a Mr Clean eraser.  After taking the photo, I tried fixing it and made it worse! The paper pilled.  Well, I decided, it was basically ruined anyway so why not give it a go at saving it.  I used a nail filing block and filed down the pills making the paper smooth again, then I painted another ballerina.  Saved?  Your comments are appreciated!

 :doh:   That has happened to me many many times. I learned pretty quickly that if the paper pills... give it a good rub with the back of a spoon and it usually lays down pretty smooth. Good fix also if you happen to pull up some paper when removing tape.  O0

Oops, thanks Val, but I forgot to put in the photo of the  new fixed painting with the added flower.    :tickedoff:   I have been making so many silly mistakes lately.   A side effect of getting older  :2funny: .  Anywho, here it is...I know the spoon fix but this was little bits of pilled paper not something the spoon would fix, but sanding it worked well.
