Dancing with the Old Birch Trees
pastel on paper, 12 x 16 inches

This pastel painting in my latest attempt at this media. With each one, I do learn something new. This pastel is a studio piece done from a reference field oil painting, two black and white studies and a reference photo that I took. The color notes from the reference oil painting study proved invaluable. Photos do not capture what my eye sees in the field at all.
