You were brave doing such a big one O0 Well done :clap: :clap: :clap:
If you can just add a bit of texture and some even small details in the open patch it would make a huge difference.

I painted this one on Canson  Mi-Teintes Pastel paper (yellow),
as I was curious to see if the semi-arid would be enhanced.

The clothes on the line had to be done over and over again
as the pastels seemed to be absorbed into the paper. I don't know
if it was the color of the pastel paper or the softness of the pastels I was
using.  (Sennelier) Many other parts of the picture also got 2 or 3 touch ups.



I tried photographing this with a light source above and then without an external light.

p.s.  excuse the tooth brush in the background.

May Lynn,

Beautiful painting in pastels.  The toothbrush adds a bit of charm.

here is my East Coast Farm I'm not happy with so much texture from the paper next time I think I'll go smoother. I'm also not to happy with the foreground I need to practice bushes and such.

It may be toothy paper, but your painting is great!
