MY COMMENTS:
Not having a good day so I decided to go back to pastel but messed up trying a watercolor paper piece. I believe I made too light an underpainting so it is flat clear color, not subtlty.
It is of the view as you walk of of the Botanical Gardens. I am thinking of donating it for the silent auction at the fundraiser I will be in.


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
input.

We should all have such bad days if this is the result.

The stroke marks in the clouds are slightly distracting compared to the rest of the piece, so I might blend them a bit. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.

Lovely.

I'm your devoted fan. Just love it.
I agree with with remark abotu clouds. I finds that clouds storkes in some contradiction with overall style. Skies could have more contrast or clouds.

You can donate it to me, DJ!;) I like it very much. Agree with Scott on the clouds though...

I think if you had stroked the clouds
(and blue of sky)
horizontally rather than vertically
you would have kept the consistency
of the drawing
and rendered the clouds in a better manner

this would have tied the bottom to the top
and accentuated the center plants

beautiful colors and scene

yeah, you can donate to me anytime as well...
love your work
