View of my Pond
Today was the second day of the Painting Water with Pastels workshop with Richard Lundgren. Our focus today was on painting still water with reflections. Just as yesterday Richard did a fabulous demo painting which made it all look so easy. And yet we all struggled so in class afterwards. LOL. I may need to work on this some more. On the right there are some large branches that are from a tree that is actually out of the picture, but I'm not sure they "read" quite right and I'm not quite sure how to fix them.
At any rate this painting is from a reference photo I took in my own backyard, standing at the edge of the pond I live on and looking towards the west. It was done on my usual, 9x12 Art Spectrum paper. Note to self: I'm almost out of paper, about time to order more!
