Please see pic below.

Dallas and it's suburbs are growing rapidly and consequently you will find many farms neatly tucked away in the middle of neighborhoods. This one happens to be in Allen, Texas. I have been seeing this rusty old tractor and the farm for a few years, I wanted to paint this Plein-Air, but unfortunately the weather of Texas is not cooperating this year. It has been raining like Crazy. I think I saw Noah's ark pass by my house yesterday.

I am enjoying my improvement. I feel like a much better painter and now my tools yield to me rather than the other way around. But if you feel otherwise… Please don't hold back. Any and all feedback are welcome.

Small 6"x8" painting.

I really like this one, Faisal. I agree, you have improved a great deal, probably during your 100 painting marathon! This composition ties the top, midground and foreground together nicely, and naturally. For a 6 x 8 painting, this is really really good!

I like it too, Faisal, and it does really reflect the way you've grown as an artist. My favorite parts are the background and the foreground tree. The colors are delicious in the leaves.

I like the way you carried the blues through the foreground and distant trees. It really feels like the tractor is sheltered in the shade of the big old tree.
