Lovely painting, Juan Carlos :clap: :clap: :clap: You still need to bring out the focal point. The figure is lost in your painting O0

lovely painting, just bring out you people a bit as per Dennis comment.  I would also add a bit more value to see the path in the distance. (very little value just to see the form of the path). i would also add more green of the trees in the black (just so it does not end abruptly) hope this helps   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well, I hope this version goes as closer to the given advices.

Thank you Dennis for pointing out the focal point!! I guess the person was a bit hidden!!

 :thankyou: Danielle for your important remarks.


Cheers

Juan Carlos,

This version is much better - better contrasts.

You are improving each time!

It was maybe not the best lesson to try the first time ever using pastel, but i decided to give it at try.
Working with pastel must be like drawing a painting.
It was very fun to do but I had pigment all over the place in a short time ;D

Vidar,

Pretty good work with the pastels.

I like the luminescent eerieness that this piece has.

The path and the trees very well done. Also, you extended the sky to the left which gives light to the trees in the back. Keep on the good painting. :painting:
