View Full Version : Before the Forest

It's been ages since I've posted a work on this pastel forum.
This one was done on pastelmat. Size is 24 x 18cm.
Opinions and suggestions are always appreciated.

Kind regards,

I like your mark making, the little twists at the tree tops and different movement within the trees. I especially like the broken colour indicating grasses at the treeline. Please feel free to disregard as light (and light values) are not my strong point ... I'm unsure of the light in this piece. Overall I really like it and it 'feels' good to me.

I really like the colors, the trees and I thing the foreground is beautiful too.
I just wonder if the sky area isn't a big large.
Maybe you coul emphasize the cloud I can hardly see ?
Or crop the piece a bit ?
Just my 2 cents, it is quite lovely as it is.
