Hey everyone, Very Nice Pastel Paintings!  I have a new set ordered and am anxious to get started with them.  For now, I know I cannot come close to such a great job as all of you have done.  You do inspire me though!  Keep up the good work...I need all the inspiration I can get!

Dennis, are you using a Cold pressed watercolour paper? I have some Arches Cold pressed I could use. Front side or back side that is somewhat rougher?

Here is my take on the farm house, I decided to try and match the stonework with more of a blue palette, I have a few sloppy edges in there that I may clean up tomorrow and the high lights on the tree on the left are too fat.  C&C please...

Looking good, Steven!

I guess by the time you got there, the lake had dried up?!  ;D ;D ;D

 O0 Very nice Steven.  Strangely enough, I also had the idea of re-painting the picture in the original colours and you have done it.  I like it.  Very nice.  Patricia

Steven,

I really like your farm house.  The blue hues are very eye-appealing.   Your lawn really looks contoured nicely.

Nice, nice work.

I love all the farm houses.  Lovely to see all the different takes in the same painting.

What a fantastic bunch of farm houses. . . everyone of them different and everyone of them an eye catcher!!

The pond is in the backyard and the dog is behind the tree in the front, :2funny: I did actually revise the door so there is a step now to actually get in the place, and then a friend asked where the path to the door was...  it's also around back with the circular driveway and anything that passes for landscaping.  Of course if this were a farm in the US there would be about 6 vintage cars in a state of decay in the yard too! ;)

Looking forward to your take on it Bev! O0
