okay, I give. I keep reading about people putting pastel work in their scanners. I've never tried it and don't know if I want to http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Doesn't that dust the glass and mar your painting?

Great landscape, btw. Waaaaaaaaay better than I think I could do.

Hugs!

It's beautiful! It really has depth. I haven't been painting too long (2 yrs) so I'm not too experienced at critiquing but I didn't seem to see anything to improve.

I like your layout, the colours and the way you have framed the scene with the trees. Nicely done http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Why do I make it so hard?

Hi Wendee
It has plenty of depth and is very easy on the eye. Lovely colours. I like it and one of these days I am going to give pastels a try. Hope I do as well as you have.... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
