I'm not saying you should stop doing it, it's practice after all. Painting from reference is better practice because it forces you to learn about color mixing, shadows, increases drawing skills and the list goes on.

Keep on painting! You have the stuff.
Thank you!

Yes, as a beginner, I'm sure they needs a great deal of improvement.

Two Landscapes, Two Approaches

Here are two landscape paintings I've done on pastel paper coated with clear gesso. Both are 9x12 and I used Mungyo and Yarka soft pastels. As I am new to pastel, I'm trying different style approaches to painting with pastel. I am more attracted to the impressionistic style and not using ground color because I like the colorful effect. I painted it with just my imagination-no reference. The other, realistic approach is much harder for me to achieve, but I think this one worked well-it is from a tutorial by Susan Jenkins. Comments and critique are welcome.
