Tonight (this morning?) I post my last 3....
|6x9 uart500 "Pelican"|
On my way home from a friend's in Webster SD there are lots of watery places; marshes, creeks, ponds and lakes. I snapped a reference from my car window.
I had yet another type of pastel paper in my cupboard and thought to use it up, as there are only 2 pieces and they aren't in the best of condition. It's LaCarte and altho it has a nice feel, I really dislike the fact any water at all will make the surface fall off. And maybe last time I tried it I didn't have some of the brands of pastel I do now, as I really enjoyed the way the pigments went on. It gave an almost dreamy look without even trying.
|6x9 LaCarte "Summer Day"|
And finally, this little scene from a pasture I ride past often during my summer rides. South Dakota has these really odd colored trees, a Russian olive. They are silvery green, almost minty colored. very tricky to paint, and even worse to photograph in a painting!
