Have to stand  far a way from this one to get it look good, but good learning it is any way. :-\

Vidar,

This is your best pastel yet.   I really like it.  Bright colors, smooth blendings.

I really like the shadows on the rocks and their shapes. Aloes are magnificent, although, I'd suggest a little bit more darks at the center of the plant, where the sun finds difficult to light the leaves. Congrats on this one!!

Cheers
Juan-Carlos

Here is my rendition of the Aloes.

Loved this class. Initially I thought it looked like one big mess, but I kept thinking on the picture Dennis showed of his first pastel. That was great encouragement!!

 :clap: Your aloe turned out great, Maryna. Isn't it amazing how part way through it looks blobby and messy and then turns into a piece of art? Amazes me every time.  :yippee:
