I was asked to post a work in progress and happen to have one from my RiverStone painting. I'm not sure this will work, but I'll give it a try...http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-May-2008/102124-RiverStonesWIP1.sm.jpghttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-May-2008/102124-RiverStonesWIP2.sm.jpghttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-May-2008/102124-RiverStonesWIP3.sm.jpghttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-May-2008/102124-RiverStonesWIP4.sm.jpghttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-May-2008/102124-RiverStonesWIP6.sm.jpg

VERY nice demo, Jill! I love the colors and the light. Yum! Tell us the paper you used and what size it is.

I hope you don't mind that I rearranged the images. In future, if you want to place the photos just be sure that you move the flashing cursor to the location you want the photo to be placed. Then click on Preview Post (in the Advanced view) and see how it looks before submitting... Not highly important but just informational. It's actually interesting to see the pix side by side, but somehow a bit of space made me see things a bit more clearly!

Thanks for sharing with us. :D

This pastel painting is approximately 13 x 26 inches and is painted on a dull purple art spectrum paper. I like working with a colored paper so that I can have a base to add the darks and bring up the light colors...

Jill, thank you for this demo! And thank you Deborah for separating them, easier for me to see too.

Jill, it seems so effortless when you do it, would you tell us a bit about what you were thinking and doing in words too?

It is a beautiful painting.

Thank you for sharing this. I too would like to read a bit about the process for you.

You make it seem like a breeze, and in reality it's such a complicated little scene! Your mind has beautiful perception of light and shadow, I and the demo is really great, thank you!

Thanks for the demo, Jill. It's always so helpful to see the steps someone takes to arrive at the finished piece (which is very nice in this case!)

Great demo, but is either a step is missing, or the thread title incorrect? Sorry, I'm a virgo (i.e. nitpicker):lol: :lol: :lol:
