I'm a new member and this is the first thing I've posted. I really enjoyed this -I haven't used pastels for a while but thought they would be ideal for this. It's also the first time I've painted something to a short timescale, I was surprised just what could be achieved - this took about 1 1/2 hours. Hope it's not too late, been busy all weekend.

(((((((welcome to the WDEs!)))))))))
And it's never too late to post. (I just posted myself ;) )
This is a lovely pastel! I really like the texture in the trees. They'll want to see this in the Pastels forum, too, so be sure to post it there as well.

Hi dragonlady! Your aspens just shout! I also like nice forest place peeking between them, looks naturaly and shady. Probably unusual colours there.

Welcome, Dragonlady. I'm glad you posted this beautiful painting. The golden aspens really stand out from the dark background forest. I also like those dark red trunks in the forest. :clap: :clap:

nice directional strokes in this pastel! You should also post this in the Pastel forum and get to know the other pastellists here. I love the color you used for the shadows and other tree trunks. Great first WDE! :clap:

Whistles!!!! Welcome to WC. :) The WDE's are 'play time.' No, never too late.
Amazing how things can 'fly' when one is relaxed.

Welcome! It looks like the winds are rushing through the forest and your aspen trees. I imagine big sounds when I study this. Very Well done. :clap: :clap: :clap:

The color is dramatic, but there is also lots of texture. Welcome and come again, this is always fun.

Wonderful to have you aboard these terrific WDE's !! And this is a real winner to introduce yourself with ! Bold, sensual colours both bright and dark. Love what you did with the background trees too, and a very nice 'wind-blown' sky. Way to go ! :clap: :clap:

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the responses. I have rarely shown any of my work outside my family so to get a response like this the first time is amazing. You have really fired my enthusiam and I have learned so much just reading through the posts on this site, the only trouble is how do I find the time to do all the projects I now have fighting for attention !
