Wow....I love all of these paintings.  It's so interesting to see how each of us put in some of our own personalities into our paintings....these are wonderful.

The other day I finally bought a pad of 11 x 15 watercolor paper a bit bigger than the spiral pad of pastel paper I've been using so this morning I attempted the sea dunes lesson on it.

My proportions are a bit off as I am still learning to draw free hand ... as simple as this scene looks I did find it a bit challenging ... still having a ton of fun and for me that's what counts ... so it's all good!

 :thankyou: both

the 3 huts and the sea dunes are the only ones I've done so far on a bigger piece of paper and I must say a bit easier to work with. For the most part I've just been printing off the templates on 8 1/2 x 11 paper and transferring  that size onto the pastel paper.

Good job, Judyth. You are doing super great for free hand on larger paper.  I've found it's easier to paint, too, on larger paper. 11 X 15 is my smallest, and I'm really enjoying it.
A beautiful painting.   :flowers:

 :thankyou: Retta! yes this is done on an 11 x 15 piece of watercolour paper so the painting is approx 9 x 13.

I do like the spiral pastel pad I have even though it is smaller because it's easy to store and it has the glassine inserts (I think that is the right word - it's sorta kinda like waxed paper) and it protects the paintings between each page of the spiral pad!
