Here's my water color pencil of the Nebraska Sky.

I did this at breaks during work with just 8 colors and no masking fluid
so I hope it did justice to the photo.

This came out very nice. There is a nice feeling of distance. I like how you handled the grasses in the field.

Another terrific interpretation of that image! I'd like to see them all together, because they were all so different but all very good. This one is very warm and peaceful. Nice when you can do something like this in spare moments and have it gel together this well!

Good for you for perservering at work, and good for you for producing this lovely warm-bright-day painting !! I like how you've added interest to the road, because it was pretty dominating. But you've made it inviting and an integral part of this very pretty work ! :clap:

Great distance!! I get a real sense of movement out of the left side. I can hear the wind rustling the fields. :)

Thanks. I'm a general manager who is trying to train off my workload to other people so I can semi-retire and do more art. (Being the owner's wife can have it's advantages too) He could never fire me I know where all the money is! LOL. But, My husband is building me a studio - so I can't wait.
I have mostly painted with oils but I think I am falling in love with watercolors because I can take them anywhere! :D
