Gee, ladies....some awesome castles!  Everyone did such a super job, and I love the injection of each author into their paintings.. Congrats Pat, Denise and Ilinca,   :deal: O0

Not thinking much on this one at all....I know just what it needs.....  :attacked:       :2funny:

I finally called it yesterday evening as couldn't tell one shading from the next! 

I'll have another go at this after I get my new lookers tomorrow, then I'll hopefully be able to see what I'm about!              ;D

Here ya go.....

Cheers, Val

woo hoo, Val - you finished a painting - so proud of you!  Love the colors in your sky - very majestic! I'd tone down the color of the dirt - seems a bit dark, than add the shadows between the dirt and the grass for that 3D effect.  Need a bit more sunlight on grass and vineyards.  I think your castle is great as is!
Cheers,
Sharon

  Sharon, I'm glad you think the castle looks ok....I can't tell where or what I shaded!   ;D    Ended up I couldn't tell a bush from the grass! I'll see if it's all fixable and finish putting the missing colours in then. I'm quite excited about these new lookers coming.... but  :eek:    might be in for a shock when I get a good look at what I've done!  :eyesclosed:

All great fun  :yippee:     :2funny:
Cheers, Val

 :wave:   Hello Mr. D.!!! You snuck in there while I was busy typing!  ;)   I guess the best bit is it didn't take a month to do!  ;D   

I think I actually did much better on the tiger with the pastels...not as many colours/mixing, and bigger contrasts.  Will have to keep that in mind for my next painting. Keep it simple.  O0

Really looking forward to the next class, I have many scenes with mist rising from the water and rising from the jungle... exciting!!  :yippee: :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Val, great job on your castle.  It's lovely....you did a number one job!   :flowers:


(This one of mine ended in the 'basket' along with the other one.)  I'll try on larger paper this time. Boy, I'm sure gathering quite a bundle of 'test paper'.  :2funny:

Thanks all for your lovely, lovely comments. Now I'll have to get brave today and have a good look at it.  :eek:   These new lookers are pretty amazing so far...other than I look like a mad fiend hunched over the computer! Have to be somewhat closer, but wow...I can see the colours quite well!  :heeha: :yippee:

Cheers, Val
