Jose, these are both beautiful ... And you did a WONDERFUL job capturing the look of joy on Jessica's face in the wheat field.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Jose, you have done such a great job on these two pieces. For me these would be the two hardest challenges. You got the reflection on the girls face in the pool and Jessica's enthusiasm is portrayed so well. I like just the touches of wheat you included.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Jen C & C's always welcome
Two beautiful pastel paintings. I also like the reflection on the girls face alot, very well done.
C&C always welcome
I am going against the tide here but I think your two pastels look a bit hurried. Not up to your usual standard. Maybe they look more accomplished when enlarged? What is their original size?
don't mean to offend...just my thoughts.

Thank You all for your comments, Sarah, I love hearing everyone's comments it helps me get better. Original size about 12x19
jfgarcia ~ These two pastel works are good. I like the first one best, because of the way you portrayed the water and reflections.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Hi everybody, I started to experiment with potter's clay (? right word ?) . Originally i wanted to make the carousel horse, but it turned out to be a fat pony. The clay is still wet and I could do a couple changes. Or, should I still put the post on it's back to make it look like the carousel horse?
Here is my contribution to this month's challenge - I hope that I've got the posting procedure correct this time.

Hello Sonia, this is a difficult subject and you managed the perspective very well.
Hi Claudia! I love this pony. Although the final decision is yours, of course, I think it is more like a real pony than the somewhat stylized look of a carousel horse, so I would leave it without the pole.
Sonia, so nice to see you! You do such a lovely job of drawing structures, which is a talent in its own right. This church is beautifully drawn.
Sheila, thank you so much for hosting the August challenge. Your personal photos were wonderful and the other photos covered a broad range of visually interesting subjects. (My only wish is that I could have tackled more of the photos.) Between farming and teaching school, this is a busy time for you, so taking on the job of hosting was very generous.
Claudia, your fat pony is lovely. I like it as is but you would have a better idea about making the changes. The fine detail work of the tail is very nice.
Sonia,a nice drawing of the Church. I'm so glad you posted it for us to see. I had wondered about the best medium for this subject and your drawing is a perfect choice for it. As Claudia noted you managed the perspective challenge of this structure very well.
