Wow :smitten: Carol, for your first time ever pastels, your farmhouse looks just AWESOME!!! I love the warmth of it and how the light of the sunset  reflects on the house and the tree. Yes, that tree is very beautiful, great details, great shape.  :clap: O0 Well Done!!! I am looking forward to see more pastelpaintings, I really believe you will be very good with it.

Wow!  Thanks Val and Riya  :smitten: .  I ordered some Pastels this week and just received them this weekend. I've always wanted to try Pastels and Dennis's class seemed like a great time.  I had a great time with it.


Thank you so much again Dennis  :clap: .

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Carol, a great job on the pastels.
 
 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Alice, your farm house is lovely. Amazing that the same house can look so different. Quite charming.
 
 :thankyou:  Riya for your suggestions.  I got lost a couple of times and see that there is a need for some things which I left out.  I will put some more colour into the house/shed to match them.  Thanks so much.

 :urwelcome: Patricia, It is allways difficult when you are drawing or painting to see all the tiny difference. I allways make photo's and put them on my computer, somehow the drawing or painting looks different, as from someone else, and I can look at it more objective...and find the places where I could adjust a little. It doesnot work allways but most of the time I see right away what my painting or drawing needs....and when not... here you allways find some great advisors, and that is one of the great charms of this community.

Riya, you are so right.  I noticed that when I take photographs of any of my paintings/drawings, I see things that need to be changed, things I have left out etc.  In other words, I see all the mistakes which I don't notice looking at it with the natural eye.  Weird isn't it.  However, I was in a hurry last night to get it posted as I was going out to dinner so never had the time to scrutinise it but thanks for your suggestions once again.   Patricia

Oh my goodness. . . . . .I simply cannot believe how many of you have done your farmhouses already and all of them are just fantastic in so many different styles and impressions! This is certainly no beginners class in pastels!! O0 Congratulations to each and every one of you!!!
Mine is a WIP. . . .probably for a week or more. . . .  :2funny:

Love these paintings! Every one unique. I got a chuckle at the Alice Lemke rendering of a Dennis Clark concept in the Tony Couch style. ;D The result is drop dead gorgeous, though, Alice. Keep going with what you're doing! What fun you are all having.

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Bev and Sarah.  It was a fun and very enjoyable lesson which will even be better when we become more familiar with the pastels.  It is a fantastic medium and I am so pleased that I am learning how to use them.

Hey Ray, I have just been thinking that you have been pretty quiet of late and wondering what you have been up to?  Thank you for the lovely comments.  I am enjoying pastels tremendously as I am gaining more confidence with them. Hoping to see some more of your pastel paintings for you were doing great stuff.  Patricia

Jennylynn, Great painting :clap: :clap: :clap:  Just be careful with the tree branches - they end too suddenly. The branches must taper gradually down to thinner branches and twigs.


Natalie, another great painting  :clap: :clap: :clap:


Patricia, Also a painting well done :clap: :clap: :clap:  You have the same problem as Jennylynn with the main tree.


Alice, unfortunately I cannot comment as we did not use watercolour in this lesson.


Carol, Nice painting with a lovely sky.  :clap: :clap: :clap: You also have the problem with the branches.

Overall you are all doing well with the new medium :clap: :flowers:

 :thankyou:  Dennis, I will go back into the big tree and add many more little branches and taper them off.  Thanks for the critique.  Patricia
