Thanks GriselMontes, the whites in the waterfall are mostly pastel.

Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Here's my painting again. I took the opportunity to use another photo that looks a little better for my little *masterpiece*

Red face Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls


Jo, is there homework for week 2, I keep checking the link but don't find anything. I know its not important as you don't know me, but I'm having surgery on Thursday & would like to be able to paint & submit the painting this week to you. If not I'll finish last weeks painting & submit that. I was quite impressed with the 2 paintings you did with Panpastels; it was amazing & they were beautiful paintings. I was quite impressed with the speed with which you worked & the materials of Panpastels was so much that I want to go right out & get them. Even though I have never worked in pastels. Just amazing! Thank you for the time you give, its so appreciated

Unhappy Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

My homework posting for last week was also one of those that got disappeared. That was bad.

But the good is that, in light of the critiques, I did it over.

Anyway, here it is. I have to start on this week's homework instead.

Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

here is my homework for wk 1 again, it is very scary, so today I just messed around with a black and white ohoto I found in the newspaper, and did that too
among all the wonderful nuggets I am learning, I am also learning that I am not a landscape paper, but it has been fun trying

both are acrylic on matboard. (the latter has a splash of pastel)

Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

I enjoyed the panpastel demonstration painting last Saturday. I will have to try them. Here is the rework of my painting as I understand it. I believe it is an improvement over the first. It is hard to believe that eliminating all the cracks in the rocks and changing the values could change its looks so much. I also darkened the values of the trees on the right side with a glaze.Thanks so much for the critique. Thanks, Janet

Hi Johannes, here it is again. I made some changes to the background trees, as per your advice. If you have a moment, could you let me know what you think. Sonia Z Palik

Wow! What an improvement! Now it is simplified and much easier to digest.

Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Well......here is my homework for week 1. The moral of my story is to not wait 9 years to paint again! Anyway, it is pastel on an 8 x 10 masonite board w/gesso & pumice ground. I think there are 10 pounds of pastel on it! Taking a photo sure reveals the warts, but it gave me a chance to make some changes. This isn't my usual palette and I'm surprised by my colors in the finished painting. In hindsight, a larger format would have been way less frustrating. I did a color wash (pastel & turpenoid) to tone the board first. I want to loosen up and use more abstract shapes. I really appreciate the classes. I've spent the last several years working in clay, but want to get back to painting. The classes are getting me motivated to dust off the painting supplies and get to work.

Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge Johannes!

Re: Homework Week 1 - Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

I am trying to pick up what I can. Did not know about this Webinairs until it was over..then registered for the second one, but at 3am. in the morning with an early start to boot..chickened out: Have registered for April and hope I get the reception alright as I do not have an early start next morning and hope I have the right equipment.

Sad I will not see the critiques....is it possible for someone to post them on a new thread?

Apparently you start in acrylics, then liquin(?), then oils. Is the liquin just painted over the acrylics then painted into whilst wet? You are urged to crop the picture I think. Whatever I pick up I will try to get someone here to confirm or clarify it for me please In the meantime, I will have a go.
