Wow, if I were trying to do this I would stop now. This is so neat. Beautiful colors.

Gorgeous people - very well done! :clap: Anxious to see what you do to finish it! be sure to update!

This speaks volumes as is !!! I don't think you need much more than finishing the sky and ground - personally I think putting the tree in would distract from the lovely atmosphere of the figures -just my opinion :)

I agree with Trish...skip the tree, it would only detract from the great job you did with the people! It's wonderful! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow! It looks great! The depth in this painting is wonderful. This is a picture of my husband, brother-in-law and daughter about 5 years ago. They'll get a big kick out this. I don't think I told my husband that he was in one of my pictures.:)

Guillaime, this is wonderful. You have captured these folks so well. Love the clothes and their shadows. Really excellent work.

I agree that this is almost finished as is. Good rendering of the figures.

What a great clean cut start. Figures, composition, and colors are all great. You're on a roll with this one. :clap: :clap:

You've really captured the scene of the little girl tagging along with Dad. Really enjoying looking at the back of Dad's shirt with those fabric lines. Look forward to seeing what else you do.

Wonderful! I am looking forward to the finished painting! :clap: :clap: :clap:

This is beautiful. I especially like the shirt on "Dad". The whole thing has a nice feel and nice choices of color.

Don't know how I missed this earlier Guilli - this is a beautiful pastel.
I really like the way you've handled the folds and creases to describe the bodies beneath - so many people forget how clothes hang on a person!
:clap: :clap: :clap:
The colours too are so apt for the subject - top marks! :D

Just the right amount of everything...delightful!
