I throughly  enjoyed the class yesterday. I took a lot of notes and chatted along with the rest of the bunch. I have to say there were very few glitches. I had a flawless class and can't believe how far you guys have come from the first live webinar. You did a nice job with the transition. I cant wait for the next class.

Thank you guys. :yippee:

I agree with Smokie 100 percent. I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining about anything here. I'm not at all.
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.

Hi Nolan
I was bumped out of the chat on one of the tulip painting demo's.  But this session all went well.  Very informative class, looking forward to next week....Lynn

Thanks Nolan!  I have my flower masked off and ready to do the background.  I have decided to use acrylics for the background so there won't be a problem with it drying.
  Y'all are doing a wonderful job with these classes :clap: I  hope you will have another one ready to go when the flower one is done.  :coffee:  Mary

Nolan talks nice and slow and every word counts! Most people would be not nearly so precise and to the point. He does an excellant job.
Mary, how did you mask it off...did you use the clear sheets Nolan used, or did you use masking tape? I was going to go get some of that clear stuff, but just decided on the masking tape this time around. Took quite a while, but got it...just hope their's no deep cuts anywhere underneath it all.

I painted the background with acrylics. The paint looks translucent in some areas do you think I need to give it another go?  Help advice is appreciated.  Thanks Mary

Sap Green is a translucent color because of the transparent yellow in it. Don't worry too much about it because at the moment it is the focal point but once the flower is in it is relegated to the "Backbenchers" and is hardly looked at. It also gives some action to the background.

Already asked elsewhere, but did you use the clear sheet or masking tape Mary?
I'm going to get mine started maybe tomorrow...the class recording hasn't been posted yet, has it??

I was looking for clear contact paper the patterned kind is used as shelf liner.  I didn't find that but in the same location I found a roll of clear laminate made by Duck.  It is thin and it had the markings on the back similar to what Nolan was using.  It only came in a 12in x 36ft. roll so I used a 201/2 inch sheet and a half of another 201/2 inch sheet.  I am going to pull it off tomorrow I hope the paint didn't seep thru.
I don't think the class has been posted yet.  Probably sometime tomorrow.  Good Luck  :gl:  with your painting. Mary

Thanks Dennis!  I hadn't thought about that. Mary

Sounds good Mary...did it work well as far as cutting thru it? Was it better in that respect than masking tape? I'll still try to see if I can find some of that stuff. Did you buy it at an art supply store, or an office supply store?

I found the stuff I used as a cover at Walmart in the housewares department where they have the shelf paper.  I think it was about the same maybe a little harder.  I had to change my blade because it wasn't cutting thru good.  After that it wasn't bad at all.
I took it off just a little while ago.  I did have the paint come into the rose in one place but only one and not a lot I am sure I can paint over it.  I am anxious for the next class :)
I think I will mix up my colors on Monday I really want to do them now but don't want to have them sitting that long.  Let me know how yours turns out. Mary

Hi Mary...I just sent you a PM. i hope you get it. It finally went thru. I have tried since yesterday sending pm's to Nolan etc and all I get is strange error messages. I have seen no new posts whatsoever on this site either like no one is able to access it anymore. But the PM i just sent did go thru finally...hope it's not my computer at fault here. I reformmated the whole thing today!
