This painting was from an image I used in the Southwest March Challenge forum and found in the RIL. Lisilk furnished the photo. 8 1/2" X 11" on UArt, assorted pastels. This is my first attempt at a primarily structural painting in pastel. C&C welcome...

wow.... lots of tricky perspective challenges here, but you have done great! I really like the floor.. the shadows are great and that little bit of shine.

Nice work!

A tough one Mark! But you pulled it off. The perspective looks absolutely fine and I like the mood of it too!

Wow Marcus, this turned out great! I can get lost in perspective, but you've handled it very well. You've handled this so well, I see a possible series of these..................:D

Hi Marcus, you did agreat job on this. love the tile floor and the the wood roof. you captured this fantasticly. I have seen this in the RIL and wanted to do it but never got around to to.

Thanks for the nice comments Susan, Ruthie, James, Steven, Pete and Chris. I had pulled this from the RIL some time ago but have been reluctant to attempt painting. It actually did not go as difficult as I would have expected. I may do a series as I have a couple more images set aside in my library.

This is great Marcus, every aspect has been well observed and rendered and I really get the sense of being in a semi-enclosed shaded area, good work.
