Thanks for some beautiful references this week Joel. I'm sorry we seem to have had problems with the site but I'm sure they will resolve themselves and we will all have a good time.

I don't think I will have time for more than one picture this weekend so, with my lifelong love of the sea it just had to be the lighthouse.

The original is 11 x 8 on 300 lb NOT watercolour paper worked with Fabio Castell Pastels and took a little over one hour.

Comments and critiques are always appreciated. I value your input.

Soft and lovely seascape. Can't beat pastels for great color.

Those reflections are so believable that it seems like water for sure.

Hi Joy. So glad you could participate despite the technical glitches.

The lighthouse looks super lovely. The light and shadows are spot on. The reflection is awesome (depicting reflection is so scary for me that's why I seldon do water scenes). The colors are great.

Thank you for you visit and comments, everyone. It is always appreciated when someone takes the trouble to make comment.

I'm so glad that some of you thought it soft enough to be watercolour. I feel as though I'm beginning to get to grips with the pastels. At least now I make mud less often (LOL) Unless you count my hands of course - they are all shades of the rainbow - anything except clean!! But as one of my great-grandchildren said the other day - getting messy is fun, isn't it?
