Guana River in Summer

I have had almost no time for pastels since moving to Florida, but this past week I began taking a 4-week class with Lyn Asselta at the St. Augustine Art Association.  This is what I did in class on Thursday night. We are supposed to be painting the seasons in pastel, and learning about choosing cool or warm palettes to represent out chosen season. Tonight we were supposed to pick either summer or spring, and I decided to go with a somewhat warmer summer palette.

I totally adore the GTM Reserve Guana River center which is where my reference photo was taken, so it was fun trying to incorporate that area into a painting, using some of Lyn's suggestions in class.
