It is really a super painting, so great to see you working, but a hard act to follow :eek: But I don't have any time this week to even think about it, so here goes.......I was painting along.

Curry's 200lb CP, UB, raw and burnt sienna, transparent yellow, tiny bit of cad red light and perm. alizarin crimson. It is really over worked, but I learned something.

Wow! Thank you for posting yours! It's incredible. Even more beautiful than it looked on screen. It has a sort of "dog days" mood, very bright and hot. The golden glaze works so well on those trees!

Lynn, your copy came out well - there's some edges that you've got hard where Johannes softened them but overall I'm looking at all the particular techniques in the demo and you've got the colors as well as getting most of them.

If I can manage it this week I might have a go either at copying the painting or painting from the photo reference. Or try to compose a study from it, focus in on one area and paint it smaller.

Hi Johannes,

Here's my painting. I painted in oils along with you and finished when you did. I went back in to make a couple of small change, the driveway, a fence on the right. On the whole I really like it considering I'm a florals and still life painter, haven't done many landscapes. I'm looking forward to doing some more. I have loved your webinar, I'm a first timer and hope to do more in the future. Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing with us.

yes your changes worked fine. See this is what I mean. We use the photo for reference, Obviously placing the fence the way it was in the photo would've ruined it. I think in general you could've gone higher in value. The trees and grass are mid dark value. All that could be mid value.

Very nice. You guys are getting scarier all the time. You can darken the fence posts a tad so they are noticeable. The idea is not to make them dark.

:wave: Here is my mostly finished painting. I didn't look at Johannes' class demo, while I did mine. Reason..I wanted to try and make my own colors. I used the six color palette with cobalt blue and diox violet. I haven't added the Q Gold glaze. I use that alot in my flower paintings and I will add it over the trees to see how that changes them. I am lousy on trees, anyway.:o http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/11-Apr-2011/187427-House_4_class_1cS.jpg I also am going to add a windmill, between the house and the buildings on the left. :( Excuse the clips, it is still on my painting board.

Hi all:

Johannes makes it look so easy, but we all know it's not! I especially love the buildings in your painting, Jo. They have such elusive charm.

Here are my two attempts, one with notes, that's trash except for the notes, and a second attempt after the demo was over.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/12-Apr-2011/84957-Cabin_with_notes.jpg

Done on really horrid Canson Cold Press.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/12-Apr-2011/84957-Cabin_attempt.jpg

Done on a little less horrid Richeson Cold Press, back side of an old painting.

Thanks ever so much for your great instruction, we are getting so much from it. I got my copy of the Catherine Gill book, what a treasure trove of good information and inspiring examples.

Best,
Nel

My first attempt... after having looked at your painting Johannes, on the screen, then dashing to the kitchen studio :) to pre-sketch and paint. (Of course, I did see your demo and basically remember every brush stroke, yet I am not you :o ... my hand does not always obey my will)

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/12-Apr-2011/171274-m_IMG_1001.jpg

Left the left (I love English language!) building away, regret it now. This is more like a sunny late afternoon in the autumn... still I think the colors are too neon. Maybe I should give this sheet a good bath and scrub :confused:
Like the doors and windows though!

I painted this during class with acrylics. I tended to make some muddy colors and had too many #8 values. I think I fixed that. I was not able to get the light areas in the foreground that I wanted because of trying to avoid adding white to colors and sticking to the pallet you use. I did try thin washes over whited out areas but still couldn't get what I wanted. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/12-Apr-2011/190342-jov_landscape.jpg

I must confess I was nervous copying Johannes's beautiful painting. I am not use to using watercolours but I was up to the challenge. As I continued I found myself repeating all the lessons and words that have circled my mind for months now.
I know there will be mistakes made but I did enjoy the process more than I thought I would.
On another note , after months of being virtually with all of you on the weekends, I will be missing my very last webinar and demo as I will be out of town. I will be checking for Robert's notes upon my return and await the download of the class.

The trees do look overworked unfortuntely when it comes to watercolors you cannot put another color into another if they are about the same value. The best we can do in this case is glaze the whole area but not add spots of color on top of another unelss it is to carve out accents and even that makes a watercolor look overworked.

The reason it bothers you is because you did not echo green in that brown tree. Green is your predominate color and needs reptition in that brown tree or we will have a sense of isolation. I like your dry brush effect in the grass. Try to alternative your rooves for more interest. if you have some that are shingle rooves alternate with another being rusted tin roof. Same with walls, some stone, some stucco, some made o0ut of wood, etc

You don't have to eliminate other hues because also another color makes it interesting just make sure you add some of the predominant hue to it so it doesn't feel out of place.

Hi:
This is my painting copying from Johanne's faithfully. It is watercolor on 140 lbs. Strathmore wc paper. It's rather on a small size 6 1/2"X 8 1/2" on 9"X12" paper.

I did my final wash with Quinacridone gold from under the sky down to the bottom of the painting. The QC gold blurred all the trees and pushed them backward which is a good thing, I think, BUT it tracked the dark green paint across some trees creating lines that are noticeable.
So, what did I do that is incorrect? I like to redo the colors on the trees again but I need your advice, Johanne. Should I redo by putting more colors on the trees the way it was before the QC gold wash?

Will very much appreciate your kind advice.

Yes when we do messy trees in watercolor it will look less overworked by glazing quinacdrone gold. You only need to do it the trees.

I worked some more on the painting I posted earlier - I changed the image and made the house the focal point. I know there is a lot wrong with the painting - melodic line not quite there in the back trees - some cloning in trees - colors are overworked (beat the heck out of the Arches paper :rolleyes:) - the mountains looked pasted on. I know I do need to start over, however, there are some things I like about the painting.

What I like - there are five planes, I like the composition with the changes - the road and the darks under the bushes lead the eye into the painting, the fence on the lower right keeps the eye from wandering out of the painting, I like the colors in the foreground - looks like there might be some puddles, the trees are grouped and with multi colors - except for the pine tree in front of the small building where I tried viridian - didn't like it and tried to cover it up but it bled through. I like the buildings and I did manage to do some carving out in the trees. So with all of that said - here is my practice piece and I like it well enough to do it over. Many hours of practice are needed.

Thank you Johannes for all the time you spend looking and commenting on how I can improve my paintings.

I worked some more on the painting I posted earlier - I changed the image and made the house the focal point. I know there is a lot wrong with the painting - melodic line not quite there in the back trees - some cloning in trees - colors are overworked (beat the heck out of the Arches paper :rolleyes:) - the mountains looked pasted on. I know I do need to start over, however, there are some things I like about the painting.

Although it looks reasonably OK, it lacks the fluidity of your strokes.

Here is the revised version of my painting. I moved the fence post as you suggested. I also did more with the foreground to make it more interesting. I improved the coloring and shapes of the central tree clusters and washed q gold over the two right hand trees. Any comments would be appreciated.

Hi Johannes
Here is my Week 11 homework. I actually kinda like this one......I see now that the tree line could be more melodic. I overworked the trees behind the main house (and then I finally just let them alone). I found doing the trees and the grassy area in the foreground - difficult. The sky and buildings I found quite easy. Still haven't been able to make turquoise for the sky.

Things I have learned:
-Quit pickin' - you'll make it worse. Think first, then do.
-too much yellow ochre pale can be a problem
-it's hard to make nice greys (on purpose)
-AOSD doesn't hurt. . . ;)

Cheers

Johannes...this is my version of the homework for this week. Its a 11 x 14 acrylic on canvas. I didnt copy your finished piece because I want to sell my paintings. What do students do with all their finished canvases? Theres only so much room to lean canvases up against a wall in a corner. I work too hard on my pieces to just paint over them. Any input would be great!
As others have said, and I have said, we are going to miss you! and your wonderful teachings. I have been painting for almost 25 years and never thought that I could "improve my paintings", but you have helped me do just that.

Johannes....THANKS so much for your critique. I guess my shadow was too faint under the dogs. Your improved shadow looks so much better. I was trying not to make the shadow so dark so that it wouldnt interfere with the dogs, but I can see by your example that a darker shadow would be best.

I took your advise, I bought some modeling paste and used it on the store bought stretched canvas. I think that the brushstrokes in the modeling paste add character to the finished piece. I hate that grid pattern that is on those ready made canvases.
I have a question, do we put the modeling paste on thick or thin? Should it be thick so that the brushstrokes show?

I want to make myself clear. I don't have an issue with greens, I have an issue with monochromatic greens. If greens are well handled they make beautiful paintings. What I did say is that if you leave greens out you have instant color harmony. So if a scene does not need greens such as a winter scene or a fall scene you may wish to consider leaving green out so you don't have to echo it everywhere.

Making those evergreen trees into a value 8 will not contribute to the painting. It is better to create the feeling of light with color intensity strong value contrast.

Hi Johannes,

I managed to re-do the painting (not exactly like yours) and feel better about this one as I didn't overwork the watercolor this time. If you have the time, would appreciate constructive critique.

I did send away for the W&N Artisan Water Soluble Oils and hope to get them this coming week - I know there will be a learning curve on how to apply the paint, etc. and, hopefully, will be able to use your techniques.

Many thanks for all your time and effort spent teaching us. There may be hope for me yet :crossfingers:

I knew there wasn't time to wait for the paint to dry, so I stuck it in the freezer while I read the paper this a.m. And then glazed it over.

Things I learned:
-You gotta glaze quickly using the freezer method!!!
-it takes some 'nerve' to glaze over an area like that

There are a couple of spots to fix in that glazed area but I just don't have time left this am to do it.......

Hi,
homework - copy painting, arrg. LOL I'd consider this a first draft re: the overworking and my struggle to incorporate some of the new techniques and tips overwhelmed me in my distraction. In the middle I remembered to toss out my ready made greens. Nelda's idea of making notes on this is a good one.

A fun beginning and an eye opening result of what I learned in this attempt. With some courage I posted this to join the group. I appreciate any crits & comments.

Here is a photo, taken by another classmate. That's me on your right hand side, busily taking notes. In retrospect I sure do regret not taking any of your oil classes before you moved. :( Aaaaargh! My loss.

Cheers!
Val

Just did this from a few weeks ago, wanted to add it. Even when I try to be muted, my colors come really bright!! I know I have some hard edges where I should be soft. Background and foreground both done wet-in-wet.

So much going on lately...This week, will finally be able to paint and study the class notes and my new books & videos.

Just about quit on this one after overworking the trees so much, but decided to continue as I need lots of practice. Especially on having some conviction when i make a stroke, wet in wet and negative painting. So many great things to work on from this class.

Hi Johannes,
Finally got this homework done, only to find a big V shape smack in the middle. OOPS!
So glad you are continuing to let us post stuff for you to look at after course has ended. Very generous of you, and so appreciated! Hope you had a great week off and a happy Easter.

5x7, acrylics on illo board.
Thanks again!

Nice painting loseness but if we place something in the no fly zone it creates a distraction.

Dear Johannes, my homework was posted in post #96. I did not see a critique of it. I can understand as there are so many of the same painting. If you have a moment would you please look at it and let me know what you think? Thanks so much. I have so enjoyed your classes.

I like the way you brought the buildings even more forward. This definitely agrees with my anology of moving the chess pieces. We create depth by sending things back and bringing things forward. I also like your lead in. When you did the negative painting it feels like your worked your way around the buildings and it is too obvious that you did that. Remember connecting the darks does not literally mean to connect them but to allow the eye flow to connect thru its visual path. You can leave small gaps between these darker areas. Those gapd would've allowes the trees to go behind the buildings, instead of the lighter vale floating on top.

Hi Johannes,
Took fence out of no fly zone. Got rid of big V in trees. I like the composition better. Think I lost the freshness of the original colors, but learned a lot.
Thanks!
Theresa
