Hi Emma and Don, we don't believe you Don

Hello Don and Emma from Cairns.

Was thinking about "DOG" Don

Emma. Don might like to talk about a question that I had. Stretch versus framed.

Can you spray the back of the canvas with medium

Emma can you do a close up for me

I like that a lot!!

Jack sparrow appears

I will be there tomorrow.

But i want to come anyway

Marg said the police couldn't keep up!!

Bit late, but watching rerun from Tassie.

Hi from my son Cooper, ( 9 ) He loves to watch you painting πŸ’•

Sara wants to know why you don't wash your brush between colours

That’s quite subdued compared to the last few drinks night.

A Big hi,i am so out of touch, had covid real bad even though I had all vacs and today was told i may have long covid, so pleased to find you tonight.I reallyy need to get back and paint.

Terri Dunn is knitting you a head warmer it looks cold

Country river bed with a grey old paddle watermill

Make that girly a blonde Donald so that it can be me!!!

Those Indonesian fish that eat your foot callus hehe

Sorry I won’t be there. Will be just out of quarantine and will stay away until next week.

One day Brad some young fella will say that to you. But thinking about it now, you don't know the meaning of the word work.

Hello Don, Emma and all that is watching

It brings in the bait fish

It’s almost Darcy Doyle ish.

Were you a Ryebuck Shearer , Don?

Put a pet dog in it ? ( from cooper )

Hi Don! Need a catch up.

I love it Don, but it seems a different type of lonely with all the sails furled.

Hi Don. I had a couple bring in wine of your paintings to frame today

As a new follower, are you self taught? You are amazing!

If they didn’t have sails the painting would look like everyone out there prawning at the moment.

It's looking better and betterer. Drinks and nibbles on the sandbank at low tide with the cruise group. Heaps of fun.

Hello Don, I'm on the way, in rainy Canberra at the moment. Get that bar sorted out.

Put a smiley face in the bottom right to make mrs Dunn feel better hahaha

Rebecca Hudson… we need to do another paint n sip with Don…

Turquoise colours... My favourite! Oceans of love to you guys πŸ‘£πŸ’š

Blue skies, nothing but blue skies 🎼🎡🎢

I've had my dinner, I'm okay now

I'm really liking this Don

We know who to put first 😏

Come for a glass of wine

No just kidding, I loved it

Hi Emma and Don. Looks like rocket fuel.

Elliot said "oh wow that's cool"

Great work! See you next week

Oh fab where in Perth

Hi Don and Emma. I have some beautiful Don Waters art at my home now. Thank you. Feel so very opulent here!!

The thing I love about your art is that you can look at something and be drawn to something else

Sitting on the deck having drinks with Don

The bottom left almost looks like a hand reaching out for them

Robbo reckons you need someone to do the edges for you!!

Looks quite ghostly but not dark like evil

Or maybe my imagination is running away with me

I’ll send Kerry she is good at giving directions

The Great Wall still doesn’t have canvas on it yet.

Put James Bond at the end of the tunnel

Been there and spoken to him already. It’s all sorted.

Is the Beenleigh class on tomorrow at 9.00am?

Throw a demon in could be an IRON MADIEN album cover lol

Hello. first time watcher. wow watching it come alive very inspiring. 😊

Looks like they are in the fathers hands

Lol I kinda like the darkness of it

Love the colours.

Hi all, sorry I’m late.

Love the orange.

A haunted pirate ship

Happy Easter

Where is the red door?

Robbo wants to know is it a portal?

Where is the puppy.

Happy Easter

Certainly making a Melbourne night very enjoyable! Thanks guys!β€οΈπŸ’™ Lovey and Mike

Speaking of possums we had to escort one from our garage last night, that could be why I'm seeing possums😁

We met before that my friend, but we brought Lovey into the Fab Four around that time! You had hair then!!!πŸ˜‚

I already know I'm going to love it it looks like the red door series πŸ™‚

Hi, I'll be late tomorrow and Cathy won't be there, poor girl is sick again

Thanks for the great advice see ya next week

I love it thanks for the great info and a great demo Don

G’day Lennox!!! A little bird told me you are doing very well at school!!! Proud of you, mate!!!

I just love watching an expert using my favourite medium

I have picked up some good advice thank you

That does look like one of the Royal Carribean paintings you did years ago

I wish could still go to your classes on Wednesdays πŸ˜₯

Wow never knew that about the oil paintings Don. Thanks for the information

I'm going to try some of this colour and charcoal

Hi Emma hi Don and yes charcoal is great

You came into our life during the red door series, Don and Mag!!

I can see a big lip with teeth in top right

I used charcoal on canvas last night under acrylic

I just draw and erase and draw and erase

Don have you ever written a book or have dvds

It's going to be good anyway cause it's in charcoal

Check out those pins!!! How could a raw blooded male trade you in?!?!!

You looked awesome in it Lennox!

Love the red door series

We are kids! Here until 19th. Heaps of hugs with the grandies!

Love it- absolutely want to be at the beach right now!

Love the brightness and colour, truly a summer's day in Qld😎

The reason I love it is because even through A picture and not the original in front of us it captures movement and the atmosphere of the beach and the people. Extraordinary artist to say the least. Ax

It’s awesome, love how vibrant it is 😍

Perfect Aussie beach scene , love it ❀️

Love it, great coloursx

Good work mate

Awesome beach scene DonπŸ’–

Omg I've just tuned in, sorry late home, hello Don and Emma

Hmmmmm i can't remember but I had a couple so I may or may not have noticed

It now looks like a ventriloquist with their doll on their shoulder. I guess it’s love if it’s a puppet. A different kind of love. (Ben)

Put a beard on it and we will know who it is

I can see it! Definitely a warrior, exhausted propping themself on the spear. Yet, I see a woman not a male.

Set up a camera facing Don while he paints so we can see his tongue ! Hahahhaha

Hello from Benjamin. Happy birthday Darren!

Great stuff Don very you

Ugle couple so it must be love

The red looks like a back end of a deer

Oh wow that's gorgeous 😍

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Hi Don, we found it..Linda and Bev.

Is it for valentine's day next week

Mother and daughter with red hair

Wed tomorrow or a week or March .............

May be they just had a kiss

Looks like something from the inside

More straight on would be good emma

Going great Don

I missed the start xx

Oh that's fantastic!

It was fabulous

I reckon they’re babushka dolls (Ben)

Everybody needs love

Don do you stretch your paper before painting

Not sure may be to many drinks with don lol

Thats what i do if you like a colour buy it lol

It is hard to see, maybe give her a guitar

I love the one on the beach you had on fb the other day

Mink coat on the shoulder

I think it's Dora the Explorer gone off track

Im fallin off the chair laughing mate

It's a shoulder adornment

Paint it gold its the golden egg

She's a lady from all corners of the world

See you on Saturday Don.

May be she is on the the titanic

I see a cat's head

Yes maybe if Don turned again

I think she's been ravished

A bearded from the circus

I didn't see any nuts Cathy

Im Nibbling Nobby nuts

She not from Jacobs well is she

If you have a look at my fb picture ofthe elephant, i painted that. Its big

I do a little bit when time allows and the seal it

I did see that. It was with coloured pencils and texters and yes you are nailing it

Still doing it and you will be first to see it when finished

Another good video don would be how you draw and paint your people

At least your Dad’s into semi abstract…mine won’t accept anything less than photorealism as art🀣

Hi guys don't know what dons doing but looking ok

Good to see you Donald. All paintings still light up my house

You scratched your head when You said 51, body language gives you away!

He always ‘lays it on ‘!! πŸ€ͺ Happy Birthday, you old g**t ! A surreal landscape methinks

Loving the colours 🀩

Ok and i lovvvveee charcoal

Hello, I know Asher is lovely

Haha sounds like my dad… you don’t listen!!!

Keep painting and get another wine

It looks like a tunnel to other side

I’m spectacular ty

Good and you ❀

Gesture drawing

thank you, great art, Don bundy and russell moris on the deck

I quit a podiatric surgery job cos they wouldn’t let me wear my crocs!

Yes i started at half 6 in nsw but you dont come on till half 7 nsw time

Do you usually just use straight out of the jar Don or do you mix with mediums when painting

Where did Don’s love of fairy and enchanted kinda stuff first come from? You can see it in his work 🧚‍♀️ πŸšͺ

where is the best spot to send homework whilst Wed group in shut down?

Don i would be interested in a education tv lesson on gesture drawing

Loving this relaxed approach on a Tuesday night. Helps me take away my fear of getting started on the first strokes on a new canvas

Hello, I finally made it here

Good afternoon Don and Emma, hope your both well 😊

I must be really drunk - I see a platypus 🀣

It’s a chrimoline lady πŸ˜‚

Loving those colours 😍

Thanks Don and Emma, that was fabulous

Yep there sure is and i love em all

He’s cute n cranky at the same time

Hello Emma, Don and everyone else

Sounds like a great spot

Flying and letting off at the same time!

And all of us watching

Keep it abstract, I dare you! It’s awesome!!

It’s kinda rubber hose 1920s animation in 3D

Very calorie challenged fairy

Love him .... Looks like baby Don.

I'm onto the lessons 😍

Thank-you for your patience while we are moving the classes back to an online format - I definitely underestimated the time required to resume our online accounts, film, edit and upload content whilst juggling school holidays and rationing toilet paper.

Current ETA depending on internet upload speed is this afternoon -which gives everyone the best part of the day to track down a πŸ€ test.

I like it Don, very Alice in the looking glass

Thank you Don, might leave them see how we go, sorry cooking chinese

Don another masterpiece πŸ‘Lots of rain in Cairns!

They might put out the red carpet for Don

With the virtual lessons, can someone send me a link of where to organise that- if it’s prerecorded that’s perfect.

You pay out on Don like my daughter does to me lol🀣🀣

Hard to hear Don even with my computer volume is up full.

I love your demo. No covid here. I am sorry about Mary. I was thinking you were a bit lost

Oh Don I’m so sorry she was always so funny with her comments . She will be missed . Take care Don xx

I love the dark background

Mankini...I can't get the image out of my head.

Needs a waterfall falling from the moon.

It looks like a chameleon from the tunnel

Actually I'd love you all to visit me too

OMG you read my mind Emma, and yes they do

Thanks so much, this was wonderful!

Is Wed classes on or off.

I'm the bird that's under threat

Look forward to it mate.

Coffee but same here’s to Mary

Do it again, I'll go to Tassie

I like it very futuristic.

Love your work Don.! Only you could do the 3 wise men ♥️

If they were carrying their shoes, they could be leaving the races

God marg didn’t leave the studio alone with Christmas decor

Hey Don, what’s your backboard made out of? I’ve only just started stapling canvas to cardboard

When you first turned that around i saw 2 eyes and the nose under the line but it vanished really quickly.

Merry Christmas to you and your family Don. Here’s hoping 2022 is a great year for you ❀️❀️

Wishing you all a jolly joyful Christmas xx Greg loves charcoal too!!

Looks like they travelled day and night

The crows cawing outside is making this video. I love Art and the sound of crows

G’day everyone, merry Christmas πŸŽ… hope you’ll are well!

I know that's when you do your best work.

When do we start back again next year

Apparently that’s not helping him with his youth

It’s got to get dark so they can follow the star

“Bastardised” we prefer artistic license.

They look like they are doing the conga.
