I had trouble too, but it said to come back in 30 minutes....I did, and watched it all.

I really enjoyed this class Dennis thanks so much for this beautiful scenic landscape and all the new techniques lots of FUN!

I didn't have 22x20 pastel paper but did have 12x16 Canon Pastel Paper Mi-Teintes 98lb 160g so that is what I used and drew it free hand. I've never done a pastel sooooo large before.

Here is my first attempt at the Sentinel!!!!

Judy, a lovely clean and well executed pastel painting :clap: :clap: :clap: If you just a bit more sunshine on the edge of the hillside on the left where it meets the rock it will make the painting pop. It will really draw the eye to the focal point O0

Judy  lh,

 Nice pastel of the mountains and the lonely tree.  You made him look proud to be the sentinel.

Thank you Dennis so appreciate your assistance!!!!!

OK I used a bright yellow pastel stick instead of the yellow pastel pencil I had used to make it POP a bit more ... yup makes a HUGE difference ... did I over do it though???

So weird how especially with pastels I find that the further away I am from the painting the better it looks.

I need to get in the habit and remember to "step back" more often and look at my paintings cause it looks sooo different up close but once I stand back a ways I'm like hmmm I actually really like this!!!

Thanks MEA!!!

I really really really enjoyed doing this one! It was strange using such a big piece of paper though!

Thank you Retta!

Having Dennis and Nolan as tutors offering their input and assistance along with sharing all their knowledge and wisdom in all the classes they teach on PB is so amazing! They along with everyone else in this awesome community continue to keep me motivated and inspired!

I look forward to continuing my newly discovered love of art. I want to explore ALL the different mediums ... oh if there were only more hours in the day!!!

A beautiful rendition of what was a lovely subject, a great lesson as usual Dennis. Your commentary and advice during lessons is un-matched, apart from by Nolan, who has been trained by the master.

 :heeha: Nicely done Judy  O0   I look forward to having a go at this. We went downtown to the University art shop and I had such a marvelous time looking and playing with all that 'stuff' !!!  :yippee:    I had set out to buy a large sheet of paper for this class ....  :whistle: .... but after testing all the brushes, and looking at all the colours of paint, and a wall full of pastel colours, and soooo many types of paper.... I came across a small scratchboard  :heeha: got super excited, bought the scratchboard ... and forgot my paper!  :doh:    :2funny:

Say.... that means I get to make another trip to the art shop!   :idea:    >:D    :run:
Cheers, Val
