Evening fleet

This is from another of my sister's pictures. Thanks again Poppy! :) The waterline looks a little crooked in this.. I don't think it is in real life - I think I just took the picture crooked.

Fixed "The Fleet"

I had some comments that the pink sky in this painting was weird, so I fixed it. I agree that it looks much better now! :)

The fleet

This is a new pastel that I did this weekend. It's 14x20 inches on "red earth" canson paper. It's from a photo of my sister's. Thanks Poppy! :)

Early Spring

This is a pastel that I started about a month ago... before starting with watercolours again. I didn't like how it was shaping up and left it sitting on my easel, until last weekend, when I thought "well, I should probably finish that!" And so I did. Although, the version below is not quite finished. In finished version the far away tree has a less even shape, and a little more colour variation.
