Thanks for hosting. I did two but the one I really over did. I have a habit of doing that some time, but will show it to you anyway. It is done on Yupo . The rooster I did the challenge on it and did this on a piece of red mat paper that had like a velvet finish to it. I liked the way it worked. It is done in pastel. I worked about three hours on the two of them, probably the most time on the yupo one as I kept going back and messing with it.

These are marvelous, Mary! Great water shimmer on your yupo piece, very cool textures. Your rooster is very handsome and colorful.

I love that intense sunset that really pops out.

You really captured the colorful vibrant essence of the rooster.

Wow! Honestly, I don't think your sunset is overdone - it's rich and wild and intense, that sun is, there in the deep envirnment you've given it. I enjoy your rooster painting too, but that sun and reactive sky are stunning!!!

I don't think the landscape is overdone, you've created a lvely atmosphere. I love the rich sunset. The rooster is a great answer to the challenge, the red surface worked well and I love the colours. :)

Very difficult to work on Yupo to blend colors, but you did a great job. The rooster is awesome.

I don't see the "overdone-ness", but I know what you mean because it happens to me a lot.
And those soft surfaces can be a challenge but you have nailed it.

Your pastel work is terrific and suits the rooster beautifully. I love the unpredictability of yupo and the beautiful effects you get with it, Love them both.
