Actually tricky, I just created an ad from my own painting (they're my 2 daughters) as a way of letting you know that I'm not a copywriter. But I think I agree with you, nothing special on this one. "A lot of work to be done", right?

by the way its beautifull that you got inspired to paint your daughters and i think this is the best part of the idea "if only fathers using these pastells can obtain your talent for a wonderfull subject like yours

tricky, if you read the line carefully, it says "serious pastime", meaning the pastel product is for professionals. Every artist needs not to be explained how thinking goes into every painting nor does he need to be reminded about his own inspirations. It's all in him, just like me and you. By the way, I think all an artist has got to do with this ad is take a coser look at the painting's details and he will get the message as to how the pastel helps bring out all that inspiration. Like having a silent "shop-talk" with the artwork. Anyway, that's just the thinking behind this ad. Yes, there can be many other approaches we can use. I'm trying new ones soon.

No. It's not about how good you can copy. It's about how good you can color your drawing using the product. To artists, the rendition style plus the resulting pastel color harmony radiating from the artwork says it all. The mind, eye, hand and Van Gogh pastels coordination. The result should be more than enough. Let me put the original photos and post it once more. You'll see that you'll be preoccupied by the comparison between the orig and the drawing, which shouldn't be the case.

Great skill! But you won't have a chance to explain yourself in a magazine/newspaper/poster.
What if is an idea need not explanation? Something needs a little thinking (which makes the audience FEEL smart when they connect the dots.) An idea that will make everyone on AOTW slap their head and say "Hi, I'm jealous for you". Anyway great skill : )

Ok, I see a well drawn pastel drawing demonstrating what can be done with the product. Is that all? You need an idea!
