Patricia, good snow.  I like the pink tinge and the pretty birch trees.  I'd like to  try this one!

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: Danielle, Mea, Lynn and Dennis for your nice comments which are much appreciated.


Yes, Danielle, just when we thought we were over with the snow, it comes back to haunt us in some way  :2funny:




Mea the brown outcrop is an embankment with rocks.  No, we must not stop looking for "things" in our paintings, that's imagination which is everything according to Einstein.  :2funny:

Here is my attempt;



I had a lot of trouble keeping the trunks of the trees clean while
doing the background.   I was wondering if it is allowable in Pastels
to us liquid masking fluid to protecting the trunks?  It would sure make
life a lot easier when doing such a varied background.  Has anyone tried it
in Pastels?

Very nice painting Maylynn.  :clap: :clap: :clap: 
 I am not very knowledgeable  in pastel, maybe the paper is not strong enough for liquid masking,  you could try masking tape, just shape it to the object, that should work since we make a border with masking tape.   As for the liquid masking, why not try it on scraps and see what comes of it.

 Thank you, All for your Encouragement!!!

Danielle;  I think I'll try the masking fluid next time 
an occasion arises.  Thanks!      ( I was using watercolour paper)

May Lynn you may want to test that out before doing a full on painting-I would think rubbing off the frisket would also cause smudging of the pastel.  I used an eraser to "clean" up the trees.
Either way your painting looks great.  :clap:
