Natalie and Karen,

Both farm house pastels are beautifully done.

Love the blue hue.

Love the warm brown tans.

Two different colors, but equally appealing.

Two very stunning paint-a-longs. Excellent :clap: :clap: :clap: Each one depicts another time of the day.
Remember, I'm not really worried about the colour as each one's pastel collection has a different set of colours.


I look to see if the techniques are being used properly. and both these excel for a paint-a-long :yippee:

Excellent paintings from Natalie and Karen perhaps if you use a scanner instead you may get a closer representation of the finished work  but well done to you both I watched the live show by Dennis and it was fantastic   Ray
Kindest regards

Thank you Jay.  I used Arches 140lb cold press.  The front side.  I normally use the back for pastels but forgot to turn it over this time.

Jill, Excellent :clap: :clap: :clap:


Jennylynn, also a very lovely painting :clap: :clap: :clap: Just sharpen up the left edge of the house and it will pop.
Also be careful about optically blending different subjects together - Just shift the two pieces of washing on the line as they look to be part of the tree trunk. Other than that you are doing great O0
