 :smitten: Your colors are so pretty Jennylynn!

It was a fun lesson-I'm finding that I zone out a little bit with pastels...I got behind on the sky and the mountains...and I didn't know there was a lake! :heeha:

Wow :heeha: JennyLynn, you are really fast  :flowers: I just saw the last hour, and loved it. Your cool colours look just great. I think the green plant/tree between the smaller house and farm could use some more and darker green, Now it blends in with the two buildings, and the wall from the farm could be a little darker for the same reason. Just a little colour, not that much but I think you have done a very nice job painting and watching the same time. And I love how you have used your own colours. :clap: :clap: :clap: :yippee: Well Done!!

Wow Natalie, your farm looks awesome  :yippee: I love the warm Autumnfeeling so different from the wintercold scene from Jennylynn. Love it to see the same drawing but with a totaly different mood.

I only saw the last hour, but It was great I only coudn't say Hello, no account. I am looking forward to do this pastelpainting myself, I will need a lot of more time then you or JennyLynn.

Started with pastel, got messy, went back to watercolor.

Wow :clap: Patricia and Alice, your paintings look just great and how I love all these different atmospheres :smitten:
I think it is great to be able to paint together with Dennis, and they all look just fine to me.

Patricia, I like the softness of your painting, but I have the feeling It could use some more colour, just like Jenny's painting, so the farm and shed? don't blend together. And when those have some more colour, the trees in the back will look more at a distance.

Alice, what a great idea to go on with watercolour, I love the intense colours, a lovely Autumnday. Well done, all of you!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow...great pictures, girls.  You all did such a wonderful job and it's neat to see the differences in each artist. These turned out very well....Good jobs!!

Hi guys. I've been away for awhile. Everyone's Farm Houses are so great  :clap: .  I hesitated to post mine. This is the first time I have ever even touched Pastels.  I will have to go back and do the other two lessons. 


Thank you Dennis for a great lesson.






It appears that I have neglected to paint most of the trees  :( .

How weird, I sent comments in about the first three farm houses - about how lovely, but very different, each one was.

The messages have not shown up yet.

Hope this one gets through as there are more pastels appearing and they are all very well done!!

Nice work, folks.
