Hi Crista, your daisy is so pretty! I love the shading you did on the petals and the wings ... lovely,
this is a watercolour..'The First Christmas Tree'...
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Sarah, a beautiful first Christmas Tree. I love the background and sky colours. These warm colours certainly give you the feeling of hope and happiness that is to be derived from the Christmas tree. I wondered about how you put the colour down in the sky to get the lighter colour over the darker colour. Lovely Christmas painting.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Sarah...Such a beautiful tree! I really like the background idea as it shares some of this particular trees history. Beautiful colors too.
C&C's are welcome.

Hello Bonnie...just by lots of glazing and also leaving the paper white where I wanted the glazingt to be much lighter to achieve the contrast.
There was a sunset here similar to this last night..the sky looked as if it was on fire. Fantastic.
Thanks Cathy...enjoyed painting this one......some of the detail is lost in the reduction.
Sarah, this is very nice1 I love the colors in the sky and the the touch of hills.
Sarah, I echo the comments of others ... the "first tree" is lovely. A very pretty effect, too, with lifting paint off in rays coming from the setting sun.
i will also join everyone else in saying I love the tree, I love who it is off-centered and lively
Hi Jose! As Sam said, it IS a Christmas painting. So glad you posted this ~ beautiful pastel work!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Hello Sarah ~ Your "First Christmas Tree" is so vibrant. Great how you left the white spaces. They just glow! The ribbon of light from the far village to the tree is so creative. You are a master of composition.
Sarah, thank you for the information. Wonderful painting. And to see the sky light up as you mentioned is breathtaking and always make me thankful to witness it.
Sarah, "The First Christmas Tree" is beautiful. There are many things that excite me about a painting and I think that color is at the top. These vibrant colors are exciting. The sky is terrific.
