Danielle,

You did a great job on the lake scene.   To me, the birds appear to be walking ON the water.  The water, by the way, is so beautiful - just gleaming.

Another of your fine pieces of work.

This painting turned out to be a whopper of a challenge!!!

First I tried out the large format.
 
Second I tried out a new  very expensive paper,  Canson,  a pastel type of Sand paper.

Ill informed I dropped some water on a couple of spots not knowing
this is a NO NO with this paper.  The sanding is only on the surface and reacts
with water.  The white plastic backing is sprayed with a sandy surface for painting with pastels.
When water dropped on it the sandy surface dissolved and no amount of pastels will stick to it. 
I was very lucky that the white plastic was right where one of the duck was swimming therefore,
| had to use a Sharpie pen to cover the white spot. (nothing I had would do it)

Finally this is what I came out with:

May Lynn, your painting is stunning! Good for you, for persevering after the mishap (which, to me, is unnoticeable). Love your shadings and color selections.
