Hi Nolan and Dennis,

I'm really happy that I was able to connect and join in on the webinar. I have one quick question for now. Will the webinar video be available in the future so I can watch it again and have a go at trying to paint my version of it? I really like the painting, and I think I might be able to do a decent job of copying it, even though I'm a newbie!!!

Thanks, again.

Doug in Dixon, CA

Darn it, I put my horizon line too high. I thought Nolan's looked a little high, and I misjudged it. So, I made the base of my mountains just a little bit lower now before i paint them in. This means the mountains will be a little big. I hope my cumulus clouds fit into the smaller sky now..should. It's not too bad.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

it doesn't matter Pat, it's the technique practice that counts O0

You're right Nolan, I think I take my paintings a little too seriously. I've always overworked them only to regret the time involved. Just another painting/step to better ones.

Sounds to me like you are gradually recognizing and conquering a few of your painting demons Pat.  :clap:

Nolan,

How long will the recordings of the live lessons be posted?  Just wondering if I need to jump to it now or if I can get the long list of other projects done on my list before I add more!  Thanks :)
