I like both of them. I would never have tried the carver. Really great crop on both of them. Keep playing with the pastels.

Re: WDE Feb 17- pastel sunset and carver

Don't put yourself down, Bonnie. You've got a wonderfully atmospheric beach painting. People who want realism will settle for a photograph but your picture has emotion. I particularly like the little figure on the far left (as viewed). It so puts me in mind of skimming stones with my kids ( and now grandkids).

Nice work on the carver - particularly the hand formation.

Re: WDE Feb 17- pastel sunset and carver

Pastels are difficult until you are comfortable with them. I like my Senn's the best, I think, but Pan Pastels are a learning experience for me, and there's nothing like a set of pastel pencils to get you going (then, fill in the color with the larger stuff.) I also love my Rembrandts and NuPastels rock as a first layer. I guess I love them all, but these I use the most. Getting used to Art Spectrum which is a special double set including extra lights and extra darks. The Unisons and others are tucked away together in a large box which I don't use. It's too confusing to have 1,000 colors in different places.

I think the first is a very good painting which conveys the subject and the atmosphere. Most important.

Your watercolor is also very good, especially the workman's hand.

I agree about the atmosphere of the sunset -- nice feeling from it. The carver is great! Good job on both.

Re: WDE Feb 17- pastel sunset and carver

Bonnie, Don't be too hard on yourself. I agree with what Joy said. Great atmospheric painting. Shows the mood and it's beautiful!
I think you are the only one brave enough to tackle the carver. I'm so glad you did because it turned out magnificently!

Thanks for joining us this week!
