Ugly coffee table (pastels):
If I live to be a hundred, I will never grow tired of sketching out these little landscapes...
New wip. Something to gather my mushrooms for me...
I'll mess with the thumbs, for sure, but I will most likely spend most of the summer learning to paint en plein air.

Comments and critiques are welcome, as always.

I'll go ahead and post this, too.
COW was a lot of fun this week.
Shadow Stalker- Thanks!
Scorge- Thanks! I really admire your work, so you made my head swell a bit by saying that.
Some things I've been working on. The first is a photo study, the second is from my head.
And some head sketches. I like some of them, so I might get in there and paint over a few.
Nice work, great finish on a lot of these pieces!
Keep it up!
Thanks a lot for the comments!
Shadow Stalker- I liked those ones, too. I had some fun with the top one.
Further progress on this one:

Your environments are just gorgeous. Lovely work.
Nice thumbs, cool scenes, and awsome use of pastels... would like to see some expansion on your figures.... great stuff!
