Hi....where was this lesson advertised?  I didn't see it on 'coming classes'.  Have I missed it?

So looking forward to this class today.  :heeha:   I have so many photos that have been taken on 'the go' and so not the best quality.  :detective: This is really going to help.  :yippee:

 :pray: Hoping today is a good day with less (preferably no)  interruptions.
Cheers, Val

 :( Having problems..... the video seems to be frozen. The audio is still running, I'm guessing from when I started it is about 44(?) minutes in. Can't tell for certain as the slide bar isn't working. Tried new browser but can't seem to get passed that point. Video starts ok, but if I fast forward it just freezes and all I get is audio.

Is this just bad luck on my  part or is there a problem?  ???
Cheers, Val

Val,

I just popped it open in Internet Explorer and it is working fine.  I don't have time to watch it right now, but did check out about 10 different spots from start to end - all good. 

Looks like a good lesson - will watch it later.

Seems the net is just running slow today, keeps buffering. Oh well, will have another go later.  Back to my pastel rock wall! I'm really tempted to make some really BIG rocks!  :crazy2:    :2funny:

Hi Val.  I'm on Firefox, and I had no problems.  Watched it twice, with a few 'back ups', too. Interesting class, and a lovely painting to boot!

I use firefox as well Bella. Internet has been a bit wonky this past week. I'll have to do one of my 0200-0400 segments... always seems the best time for me and internet video!  :yawn:    :popcorn:    :tooth:

Patrician,
Nice painting, now I know what the lesson was about.  I still cannot see the image in Dennis first post.

I really like the composition and the colours you have chosen.  Also nice to see a vertical (portrait) landscape.

One detail catch my eyes, and maybe the photo is distorded.  But vertical lines in a building must remain vertical, is this correct?  If so, the top of the first window appears to be slightly tilted backward.

That person in the doorway really put your painting alive.
 :clap: :flowers:
Cheers, Annie

Patricia nice job on your barn. The only thing are the trees. They look too much a like and pines don't look like that.
 :clap:  :clap: I think they are coming alive. :2funny: or maybe the person in the door has the music on and they are dancing.  ;)

Patricia,

Nice colors, even on the dancing trees.

Except for the need to straighten some of the non-vertical lines on the barn, I think this is really good.
