Have to stand  far a way from this one to get it look good, but good learning it is any way. :-\

Vidar,

This is your best pastel yet.   I really like it.  Bright colors, smooth blendings.

I really like the shadows on the rocks and their shapes. Aloes are magnificent, although, I'd suggest a little bit more darks at the center of the plant, where the sun finds difficult to light the leaves. Congrats on this one!!

Cheers

Here is my rendition of the Aloes.

Loved this class. Initially I thought it looked like one big mess, but I kept thinking on the picture Dennis showed of his first pastel. That was great encouragement!!

 :clap: Your aloe turned out great, Maryna. Isn't it amazing how part way through it looks blobby and messy and then turns into a piece of art? Amazes me every time.  :yippee:
