 :sweat: That wore me out!  The highlights are really bright in the photo-I'm not sure why. 
Someone (batman?) suggested using pastel shavings for the beach, so I sprayed that area with fixative and smooshed all of the pastel dust that came from doing this picture.  I sprayed it again because it is pretty chunky-even after I put another sheet on and pressed down.  Still better than trying to dot it out!!  O0

Fun lesson, but the reflections were harder than I thought they would be.

Lovely lake scene, Natalie.  Pastel sounds like a lot of work to me.

Great job, Natalie.  Your reflections are really good and I like the 'bright'....really makes the picture pop.  I see you straightened your water line on the left, too.  My template had it too crooked.
Love your pic, lady!

Good on you, Natalie for finishing the painting :clap: :clap: :clap: I think you may want to check your white balance on the camera. You may also have taken this photo in a different type of lighting than the first one.

Add a few slightly sloping lines as I have done on the foreground (shore line). At the moment it looks like it is a vertical wall. Those lines will flatten the ground and add the slope towards the waters edge. O0

Thanks everyone-it's not that bright in person.  I flipped my easel so my window is behind me.  I guess that did it because I don't mess with settings on my camera.  Will do Dennis-I just need to scrape pastel dust off and they are under there.

Danielle-you did a picture perfect job-I admire your wooded area and your reflections are spot on!  :yippee:
