Well, I really liked the picture of Chloe doing her homework so here it is. This is at about an hour and 15 and I know that some of the tones in her skin are off, but i will work on them some more...

11 X 14, soft pastel on schmincke sanfix paper (sand colour)

Nice work, Cori. I did that one too. Loved the mood it seems to show.

Cori...you've got that mood to a T! :clap: Will look back later!

Cori I have to say I just love the way you portrayed this...its as tho I am actually standing over her saying "Chloe just do it...Please just do it" :D and arent you brave to tackle the table and chairs, the colors are wonderful :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like how you captured her concentration. Of course, I'm not sure what she is concentrating on...maybe Mom, why do I have to do this??? :D

I especially like how you did the hand holding the pencil. I have so much trouble with hands and you did a good job with it.

Thanks, guys. This one was fun. Although I came down this morning, looked t it and started to laugh becasue I realized I had been so careful to not put any colour on the clip of the clipboard...that i forgot in the end to put any on it!!! It's still the colour of the paper! :D

I'm going to try to put in some more work on this today and finish it up, but I have plans with family and then I am going to try to go to Lorna's show if there is still time. Maybe late tonight I can get back to this...

I love the perspective you've taken here....makes it seem as though the homework is weighing on her! Nice job.

This feels to me like a still from an animation. And I'm not sure why, but I want the soundtrack to be in French. Of course, then I would need subtitles. This piece has loads of charm!

I love the strong contrast--and it all feels like see is really thinking hard---that blank paper tells me that she is wondering what to put down. lol--really a great story type image. love it!!

Love the color scheme in this one and the composition. This evokes those memories of sitting at the table to do homework when I'd much rather be doing something else.

Nice job!

I really like this...the emotion comes through...

Okay - sorry it has taken all week. It has not been a very good week for me, but I was bound and determined to get this to a point where i would call it finished enough for me (and, Angie, I managed to do some very horrible things to Chloe's skin as I was struggling to get it done)

Anyway - I adjusted the skin tones and i know they still aren't perfect, but i am tired of fiddling. I went with a crop and here is the final product...


Probably about 8X10. and i will hopefully get some portrait colours for xmas :)

Good job Cori. I like the cropped version better. The table semed to be doing some weird things in the other one.
ps.. is that supose to be a hint? ;)

lol...hardly. I have a suspicion that the Santa 2 hours north of here is planning to spoil me with some new colours this holiday season...of course one can never have too many :p
