Oh, wow, Selen.  What a difference the paper made.  The second one really looks like a pastel while the first one looked more like a watercolor.  Guess all that nubby paper really holds the color better.

Regardless, you did a great job on both of them.

 :heeha: Beautiful work Selen!  O0 Honestly...I like them both. Surprising how much difference the texture in the paper can make. Either way, you are building beautiful pastel paintings.  :smitten: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

That's the idea about art, that you can experiment with colors, mediums and tools!!! You've done a smart thing and the best result at the end!!! Good work.

Lovely, Fiona.

Psst, the side of  farthest left wall kicks out to the left a bit.  I feel like such a know it all because I know that vertical walls are always straight up and down. (unless it's just the way the photo came out.)


Lovely colors.  Pretty sky.  Clean laundry.
