This is from Nepal , where I had gone trekking long ago.
Dont know if its still standing, and the people who lived there are still alive.
Pastelmat, 18 by 12 in.
Rembrandt,Schmincke , and La Franc pastels.
I was trying to show the vast distances between the house and the looming background mountains-

How beautiful! I admire your skills and ability to avoid unnecessary details.

Shireesh, this is gorgeous! Your loose handling of the pastels make this a refreshing, lively painting. However, I could not really tell that was a mountain in the background and thought it was just the inventive way you had painted the atmosphere. :) It is very beautiful!

I like this, but as Blayne said I couldn't tell that the background was a mountain - I thought it was a cloudy sky. Either way it is a beautiful painting.

Beautiful. I hope it is still standing as well as the owners. We live on a planet that is forever changing but even knowing that we are sad to see such tragedy. Pam
