MY COMMENTS:
I'm torn between working in oil or pastel. Pastel seems to come much easier for me, but I don't know if this one is too "sketchy."

Don't rub all the light out of it, please. Pastels are much better when you let the medium shine on its own. I think you need more darks in the foliage (such as purples) to give the trees dimension and definition, but the light in this is lovely. Don't worry about "sketchiness". Overworking is a far more common danger.

This shows a lot of energy. It's not too sketchy. I love the grass!

This is the Bobbi we all know and love!

Nice to see your pastels are as vibrant as your oils.

Bobbi, I'm so happy to see you breaking out the pastels. I've often thought that pastels would be wonderful for you!!

This is terrific. Filled with that rabbit glow you are so good at.

Don't rub! Your work is filled with texure, and your direct pastel painting is wonderful.

Do more!

Helen

Thanks all you folks! I plan to do more pastels, but I'm not going to post here anymore. That Mark fellow has ruined this section of wet canvas.

don't be a silly bunny, rabbit, mark is just getting a grip, often a fierce opponent becomes a good friend.

Bobbi, please don't avoid this forum. It's really filled with terrific people and their wonderful art. Don't let one person ruin it for you.

Sure do love that painting.

Well dang! I go to a training session at work, grab some dinner on the way home and then open up wet canvas and you guys just made my day!!! Thanks a bunch.

I come here to learn and get feedback. I appreciate the help that's offered. I took a bit of the advise that was offered and I think the pastel is better because of it. I softened some parts, and left marks in other parts. Added just a bit of purple to the tree. I think that's going to be it.
