Re: Nov-Dec Tutorial: Painting Buildings in a Loose and Colorful Way!

Folks, the tutorial's first lesson will be posted tomorrow around 10 AM, EST, USA. From now on, you should monitor the Tutorial Thread for the lessons and the Homework Thread for posting of participant's work, and all of the commentary.

Those threads are found at the top of the first page in the Learning Zone. Click on "Learning Zone" and you will see them there.

Here we go! Sling paint!
Virgil

Re: Nov-Dec Tutorial: Painting Buildings in a Loose and Colorful Way!

Hi Virgil,
I revisited this thread, and redid the assignment, but can't find the hi eWorld thread, so I put it here. This is on regular sketching paper. Hope this is OK!
Nancy

Re: Nov-Dec Tutorial: Painting Buildings in a Loose and Colorful Way!

Nancy, are you working your way through the tutorial? Your painting is awash with brilliant late afternoon light--the painting has a wonderful glow, don't you think?

The effectiveness and appeal of your painting is heightened by the use of warm-cool contrasting passages and the near complementary contrast of the wonderful saturated yellow-oranges and the more neutralized violets and blues. The overall visual effect is very eye-catching. Congratulations!

What do you think of your painting? Did you meet your painting objective?

Sling paint,
Virgil

Re: Nov-Dec Tutorial: Painting Buildings in a Loose and Colorful Way!

HI Virgil,
For the first time in a long while painting a scene with both woods and buildings, I was happy. Yes, I am going through all of the tutorials you posted, and some tutorials on perspective, which is always my issue. I feel that drawing well is such an important part of painting, and I struggle with drawing, and have for years. It is why I always end up giving up on painting.



So, I am being stubborn and starting again. The good news is that I do retain some lessons learned from prior attempts. At this rate, I will learn to draw by the time I am 85!

Best,
Nancy

Being "stubborn" is a good thing, IMO. Keep painting Nancy!

Sling paint,
Virgil

Re: Nov-Dec Tutorial: Painting Buildings in a Loose and Colorful Way!

I have just found this thread (I must have been hiding somewhere to have missed this!), and have had a good read of everything that is required. Would it be OK, or is it too late, to submit my progress. If it's OK, should I submit through the homework thread?

Hi La Pelouiniere,

We don't close down any of the Monthly Classes threads so newcomers can find them and use the info in them at any time.

Please do post your work or questions in The Homework Thread. Here is a The Tutorial thread for the Class for those who haven't found it yet. Thanks.

Sylvia
