I've just finished putting my paper on the stretcher board for this lesson! Going to watch it while my paper dries outside, if the net holds. We're getting lots of thunderstorms recently which usually means loss of power. My pine cone will be coming soon.  :painting:
The swelling is almost gone, just a bit stiff and achy still, but that won't stop me now!  :strong:

Here is my pinecone.  They are not as easy as they look. Kathy

Nice job, Kathy - good to have another pine cone completed! My only suggestion is to add a bit of the pine cone color to the whites on the tips - they seem a bit too white right now. And that's what's great about Dennis's lessons - they always challenge us!
Cheers,
Sharon

I turned my pine cone into an experiment. You know how I love a good experiment!  >:D
I am using my Daniel Smith paints which are limited, and not the usual colours. I decided I  needed a 'real' challenge!  :doh: This is challenging enough without adding the extra stress, but it really is exhilarating even though it's a bit of a dog's breakfast! I did the background yesterday, got the second round of masking on, and the undercoat on the cone. Wasn't able to get back to it today, but hoping to finish it up tonight once it cools off a bit. Not good to drip on your paper and paints!  :sweat:

Great job Kathy, hope this turns out half as well as yours did.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

I didn't get any done yesterday so here's where I am at. I enlarged mine a bit so I could see the little bits better. I've done this using only three colours so far.... Daniel smith Burgundy Yellow Ochre, Deep Scarlet, and Blue Apetite. Just wondered how it would turn out using different colours than the normal that I use. So far.....not bad. Most of the time was spent mixing!  :tongue: Couldn't have gotten this far without my colour wheel.
