Re: August 2018 Oil Pastel Challenge and Chat

Very cool interpretation of that landscape, Terri! I love the way you dialed up the colors. Nice, cool shadows and greath sense of depth and distance, too.

(Just as an aside... Sometimes I like to guess who will pick which photo from the challenge. I figured that you'd pick that last scene with the sunset and the saturated lozenge of artificial light beside the outbuildings.)

Thanks for the comments, Lamar!

I did have a look at the photo you mentioned, it's funny you pointed that out.
Keep 'em guessing, that's my motto!

Re: August 2018 Oil Pastel Challenge and Chat

Thanks Christel, I am about to start my third version. Not having the skin pastels I decided to purchase a Sens one to test. Bad move. Love their texture - or lack of.
I do have trouble with colour matching, so really appreciate your suggestions.

Very nice, Christel! Good facial details and on the jammies, too. The left leg is in an awkward position in the photo, so I think you captured it as best it could be.

BTW, I am happy to take my turn at hosting for September, unless we already have someone lined up. Just let me know!

Sure thing, Christel. I'm glad to help. Guess I better start rounding up some images, the month is flying by!

Painted the tree landscape on a watercolor sketchbook. Size is only 5.5x8.5 inches. Mungyo OPs.


Thanks Jennie for hosting the August challenge.

Wow, Raj - great work on these trees! I love your texture in the grass, too. The shadows and the tree bark are great. Nice work!
