Well, we had a snow day in New Orleans and in my boredom I did this.  The perspective is wonky so I need to fix it.  Obviously I jazzed up my room with pink walls--it was just a nice contrast to the dreary weather.  Hope all are staying warm.


Here is reference photo:










  Oh this is blurry, I'll see if I can get a better pic.

I like the texture of the couch and the color palette on this one, looks like you are falling for pastels as hard as I am O0  The high key works great on the walls

Thanks Steven, Yes, I noticed that love affair you were having with your pastels.  Can't wait to see the one of the marsh framed.  Beautiful water in that one.  As for the pastels, I can't leave my hands off of the wild and wonderful colors--just too much fun.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  As per usual, well done on your pastel painting picture Lynn.  The colours are so warm which is very inviting while we are literally freezing here in Canada.  Patricia

Lynn, what a fun thing to do! Very well executed. Your pastel painting is most engaging. The only small correction I suggest is the shadow on the blind which needs to be straightened.
