Evening Walk

Glorious; good composition; wonderful combination of colours. Lovely picture. It is always good to go to drawing/art classes for different techniques and drawing practice.

Just love those superb clean blues and oranges, superbly blended. Perfect composition, too. Really good, Val!

Lovely colours Val, I like the trail left in the wet sand, the pastels have worked well 😀

Thank you for your comments Brenda, Thalia and Linda I enjoyed doing this one even if the dog is a bit iffy :)

Sunsets are so difficult to paint, you have done a cracking job here Val.

Magnificent pastel painting Val, such wonderful colours and a great composition.

A beautiful sunset Val, you have captured the distance very well and I love your reflections. Wish I was there!

Stunningly beautiful, Val, and I love the composition., and those waves, breaking on the shore are superbly done!

Alan, Margaret, Carole, Chandra and Russell your comments are very much appreciated, thank you.

Wow. What a sunset, Val. Beautiful.

Thank you Barrie, you are right about the colour but as I wasn't confident in my ability to draw a figure I didn't really want it to stand out. You can see my dog is a bit iffy :)

Love it :)

First pastel in 6 months, don't know why as it's my favourite medium. Soft pastels on colourfix partly based on a CR free photo on PMP. Not the best of photos as I took it on my phone.Thanks for looking.
