"Crex Meadows in Pastel"
pastel on sanded paper
$150 framed (glass and spacers)
Painting out has many advantages. For me, doing those paintings out of doors are painting notes of the colors seen that day. I like to use paintings that I have done this way in the studio to do pastels. That is what happened with the above pastel painting. There are a couple of other paintings that I did of Crex Meadows that I plan on using for pastel studies as well.
Look for more pastels in the future. By the way, I also used some of my homemade pastels on this painting. Luscious.
