In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these  to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future.  Thanks


There is no template for this lesson. It will be drawn freehand.
I will be using a medium gray sheet of pastel paper 500mm (approx 19 3/4")x 340mm (approx 13 1/2")with a 50mm (2") border. The exact size is NOT critical.


My actual painting area will be 400mm x 240mm. You may use any colour paper and size you feel comfortable with.

I get too frustrated trying to work with my limited pastel colours, so I thought I'd try and sketch the lesson. Then Dennis got out 'charcoal'!!!!  :heeha:   Oh boy!!!  :heeha:

Here's my effort, I didn't add all the extra grasses and flowers, I was starting to smear charcoal everywhere. So whadda ya think?  ???    This is my second ever attempt at charcoal.  ;D

Cheers, Val

 :smitten: I love your charcoal effort Val!  Nice texture in your tree area.

My sketch isn't quite in proportion to Dennis' drawing-but I'm still happy with it...clean stripes with dirty sides.  :2funny:

Nice job on your huts, sure looks different in colour! I didn't see Dennis' finished painting...my internet died and I had to buy some more. I had to....wanted to see all the paint/draw alongs!!!  :heeha:

Super job Natalie, you have a beautiful spotlight on your huts.  O0 Lovely colours too.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
