I wanted to do the landscape and was going to do it bigger but started on the smaller one so did it on Yupo. It is about 13 X 18 done in liquid wc.
The other one is about 15 X 18 and done in pastel. These were done without any predrawing and even though they were of the same photo they are not the same. I always get off doing my own thing on any painting I do it seems.
The pastel I put under glass and in a frame and it is showing up somewhat darker than the painting I guess after looking at them they are both somewhat darker than the paintings.
Thanks for hosting and giving us some nice things to work with.

I like them both - but the second one has a dreamy quality that appeals to me.

Gorgeous landscapes, love that you came up with different interpretations in the different media. I like them both, the crispness of the watercolor piece and the softer, dreamier atmosphere in the pastel piece.

Both are lovely in different ways. I too like the crispness and the wonderful tangle of branches in the watercolor, and the pastel one has a nice soft quality.

Good work on both!:)

I think they're both great - can't choose between one or the other. I want to try to do this one over on a bigger sheet of paper.

Both of these are equally amazing, truly wonderful works of trees.

You got a degree of control on that yupo that I would not have thought possible. It is so sharp and vibrant and I like it a lot. The pastel is beautiful as well.

Thanks for all the great comments. I do love working on the yupo. It is funny what some think is so hard, comes easy to us. I am that way with anyone who works in pencil. I just do not have the patience for doing all it requires. Sorry I do not get much commenting done. Am thankful when I have the internet long enough to get in once in awhile.
