Geez, Natalie, after such a fantastic painting submitted, you landed up in hospital.  My word, what a shock. Anyway, I pray that you will soon be well, out of there and back home wielding the pastels and paint brushes.
Please keep us informed as to your progress.

The sky on Jennylynn and Patricia are very good and it nicely brings you down to the scene below I think Jennylynns painting gives a sense of a storm brewing where as Patricia is very tranquil just few issue that Mea brought up but I am sure when Patricia implements them it will look very good   Great work from you both  Ray
Kindest regards

 :wave: Ray, thank you for those lovely comments.  Yes, I have toned down the driveway/path which looks much better and also moved the path around the garden and it does look much better.

Jennylynn--I love the movement in your painting.  Also that green is really complemented by the Red laundry which is whipping around.


Patricia--wonderful sky and general mood.  I like the circular drive.  Honestly my first thought was, "If I lived in Patricia's house I would leave only momentarily and then circle back immediately to home, Who would ever want to leave Patricia's warmth??"

Lovely painting, Patricia :clap: :clap: :clap:  That pathway is because the lady of the house uses it for exercise. O0
It's a pathway that definitely does not lead the eye out of the painting :2funny:

 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:  Dennis you crack me up.  I was just thinking about the scene itself and didn't want to put any bush/flowers around the house for being in the country, snakes would be a problem and I am scared of those reptiles!!!!

I guess you won't be visiting me then Patricia... the Rio is so full of all kinds of living creatures. I had to save a little gecko the other morning....almost did him in with my scrub brush!  :faint: He was fine once I rinsed him off and put him on the dock piling. He probably jumped back on as soon as I turned my back!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Lisa and Val, the area in South Africa where I come from is sub-tropical and we had EVERYTHING there but the most dangerous of all were the green and black mamba's for if bitten, you have 20 minutues within which to get to the nearest Hospital otherwise you are history and we had these snakes come into our house!! Some were as long as 6 feet or more.  I had to call the protection services to get one out of my kitchen. The geckos were plentiful too. I would be bathing and they would fall off the ceiling into the bath causing me to jump out the bath and then have to try and save them. Oh! Scary stuff. We had Vervet monkeys in our backyard like we have squirrels here in Canada. They too used to get into my kitchen and steal my fruit or sugar.  I could tell you stories that would probably make your hair stand on edge but those were the joys of living in Africa and I would not have changed it for anything.  It actually enriched my life and endowed me with a healthy respect for every living thing.   Patricia

Hi all
This is a lovely scene and everyone's paintings are really well done.  I printed the template out too small so it was quite difficult to get any detail without pastel pencils but I had a go:) 
To be honest I'm glad I've never come closer to a snake than behind the glass at Chester Zoo ...
