    My fence fell down while I was gone. I didn't want to bother with fixing it so I could continue on with the inner coat. And of course the wife invited the family over this evening..... People and things needs to stop messing with my painting time.

    It was great to meet everyone! Now I have to figure out who goes with which username on here.

    Fourteen hours later we are back in Canada...but we forgot Gordy! we had a blast!! Tom, Dave and I want to thank Gordy, Alex, Fernando, Chris, Charlie and everyone else who made this such a great workshop. To have the chance to sit down with such a great group of guys, meet new friends, hold some awesome painted miniatures in our hands and study them was worth the drive! Im not eating cheese or sitting in a car for a week, but the juices are flowing and the paint brushes calling, a big thanks to everyone, eh!!!

    finally getting a chance to check in. Man I had a blast at the workshop and really feel that I learned a great deal of the Spanish way of painting. I will be sharing it with my club members. Thank you to Fernando for traveling to the USA to teach us Americano's something about painting. So to Fernando I want to say "welcome to America" one more time and a huge thank you to Gordy for putting the workshop on, I hope it isn't the last one. To the rest of the painters I want to say that it was so great to meet all of you and I look forward to spending many hours in the future catching up at shows and hopefully future workshops. I really think I made some life long friends at the workshop.

    Well, time to get back to painting. Does anyone know where I can get some thinner, specifically Tamiya thinner?

    Kudo's to all and especially Gordy, Fernando and Alex and also Charlie and Chris for their hospitality. I learnt a great deal about the dreaded Acrylics and a fabulous time that was shared with all that went. It was an experience of a lifetime and hope that it is not the last.
    Thanks for the great week-end to you all, as that was the essence of the seminar.
    Cheers

    Just wanted to add to the rest of the posts that it was indeed a great workshop! A huge thank you to Fernando for helping me overcome my, "fear" of putting paint on the figure and providing excellent instruction on how to paint with water based paint. I'm not sure if I'm ready to taste how the Vallejo paints compare to the others, LOL. Also a big shout out to Joe, Bill and everyone else who gave me advice on painting techniques. And of course last but not least to Gordy for making it all happen. I hope everyone's figure made it back home okay.

    Well, buddies... The jet lag doesn't let me be as poetic as I would like.
    What can I say that hasn't been already said by you?
    I have been attending since some time ago to several shows, seminars, modellers gatherings and reunions and I can sincerely say that rarely I have had the same feeling of comradeship and cordiality that I had this weekend.
    "Welcome to America" has been the catch phrase of the weekend but, for me had a true and sincere meaning that I could be able to confirm at every moment. Guess you all know what I'm talking about...
    Thanks ALL for EVERYTHING. As I said to Chris, "This is the first time I meet you, but I have the feeling that it won't be the last!" :whistle:;)
    Keep safe, friends

    A pleasure to meet you, mate!
    Sure it was a great night. Saint Charles loks straight out of a movie filmed in the average American town. A pleasure to walk the streets and have some beers with the genuine people we found there. The motorcycle gang buddies were awesome!
    Hope to see you in BCN.
