Re: My first pastel landscape wip FINISHED!

Hej Dorte,

You sure have the patience of a Saint :-)
Now I know that you'll be abble to do what you'll put yourself up to.
You know, one of these days I'd like to see you paint a trompe l'oeil.

Kind regards,

José

Re: My first pastel landscape wip FINISHED!

Wow, when I saw the photo ref. for this one my JAW DROPPED. I could not imagine tackling something on so grand a scale. But you did a marvelous job. Just awesome, and quite otherworldly looking. Did you ever hear back from the photographer?

Re: My first pastel landscape wip FINISHED!

Dorte,
Good luck on your exhibit this Saturday! You will just WOW them!!! You are like a butterfly coming out of her cocoon, you are trying your wings doing new things. The best of all you are sharing this experience with all of us, and we are awed by your determination and talent, and each of us grows a bit with your growth.

Thank you once again.

Now get off line and finish your commission. Thank goodness there aren't any more Harry Potter books coming we just can't stand the suspense! (:

Carol
