Gita, how long did it take to sketch this guy?  Did you take a photo first or did he pose for you the whole time?  :)

Thank you Mea. It's a piller and not a wooden table ( see photo). That's right, "Neon" suits so well to describe the green.
Val, looking forward to see your pastel lizard.

Liz, all the sketches I made here took me about 30 to 45 min. If I have an idea of sketching something I make a photo of the scene and start sketching. Actually it was difficult to get a close up of this shy guy..🦎😃. Looking forward to see your sketches, too!

The lizard may be a way off....still feeling my way around these pastels. But, I have been known to jump the gun before!  ::)    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Having a short vacation in Tenerife. The pine forests, which grow only at a certain height are so impressive. Wild chrysanthemums grow all over at present. So beautiful.

Thank you Dennis!
This is another one, a plein air water colour sketch done in La Esperanza in the north of Tenerife.
Hope I got the perspective right.
All comments are welcome!

This is my first time to Tenerife, Mea. It offers both relaxation and if one prefers a lot of turbulence. It happens to be carnival time here and it would be a shame not to visit it, since it’s known to be the second best in the world after Rio. Even some animals had a costume😅
Here are some on the spot  impressions in my sketch book. Did the colourings later.
