Thank you for a great lesson Dennis, nice to do more realistic watercolor again.  Here is my painting, please let me know if anything needs more work.  I agree with Sharon, looks like an old masters painting...

Mary Lou,

Nice work on the horse and plough.

My only concern is the highlights on the top of the trees.  They seem to be too much of a solid mass.

Your distant mountains, treeline, and structures have good depth.

Really nice work Sharon and Mary Lou! Mary Lou, I guess your horse isn't as well trained as Sharons  ::)

Very well done, Mary Lou :clap: :clap: :clap: I"m missing the shading in the horse to give it volume. Another point is that you forgot the vegetation and ground in the white spot above the plough and around the feet of the farmer.

Thank you Josie, Mea, Denise, Dennis and Danielle.

Thanks Mea, I added some darks.  Denise, too funny.   

Thank you Dennis, I  added the shading in the horse and put in the ground by the farmer which I forgot to do.

 :thankyou:  for another interesting lesson Dennis. However, it was a bit of a nightmare for me as I lost my lines in the field. Comments and critiques are always most welcomed.  Thank you.   Patricia

Very nice work on this, Patricia.

The shape of the farmer looks good, but he needs a bit more shadow on the ground.  Glad you made the horse collar look less obvious.

Fine work.

Mary Lou, in checking yours again, I see you left a white space between the horse's front legs.  Otherwise, it looks good.
