Tom, you are very talented.  I don't work in pastels but I know what I like.  I love this posting showing your work space, supplies and work in progress. I saw where you just started painting in August of last year.  The Stone Arch Bridge is lovely.  I realize that it is a work in progress so I would make a suggestion that you break the surface of the water that reflects the bridge with a highlight or ripple so that it reads as water.  Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Thank you for looking and commenting Sharon.  I consider it finished.  The photo I used shows absolutely no water movement and I think that's what attracted me to it.  I've shown this in several other venues and the comments are about 50%-50% as to whether it needs to show water movement or not.

What a fabulous scene to recreate in pastel. Yes, this is nicely done.
