Thank goodness Lynn just replied because I had missed this posting of your Van Gogh, Val. 

I love Van Gogh and your painting feels right - colors, swirling shapes, hayfields.  Vincent would be proud of you.

Thank you Lynn, it was a serious battle to keep my grubby fingers out of it!  ;D   I am truly enjoying myself with the pastels. Have to work on the pressure aspect... just a tad heavy handed. Still a bit timid with them but I'm sure that will pass.  O0
Cheers, Val

Have had a great day so far... moved back into the lagoon, much calmer and quieter. Have the pencils, pastels, and paints out today! So.....

Here is the pastel I am working on. I think you can recognize the dolphins  ;) still lots to finish up on them.  I am on a third layer for the water, not sure where to go with it from here. I still have to work in waves, crests, etc. ....Seem to be stuck, lend a hand all you pastelies!  :help:

Cheers, Val

A very appropriate topic for you Val.... Just what a hot cranky landlubber needs to see to cool them off. I'm looking forward to watching it develop.
