Great job overall, but I like your stone path in particular.

Re: View from my front stoop Xpost from pastels

You mentioned a short while ago that you wanted to get out and paint. This is a really enjoyable painting. I too like the steps and walk way. Plus your use of subtle greens is very nice.

I tried using hard Prismatic NuPastels for plein air and found it tough. Too many choices for me.

Your painting is lovely: your path is a lovely, welcoming place.

I really, really like this painting. Nice view, nice stonework, nice trees, and of course I love pastels!

Great stones! That’s not easy to do.....
And nice shadow work in a well done composition.

Thank you very much for looking and commenting.

I have made some changes based on pastels forum feedback.
