Maritime morning

Every summer I take my pastels up to Canada with me and VOW I will do lots of painting, and yet I never seem to get as much done as I think I would. This year was a very low year and I only did TWO.

Actually three I suppose, all on Art Spectrum Colourfix, 9x12. However the first one was just so completely dreadful that after an hour or two I just rushed into the kitchen and rinsed everything off under the sink! I was left with a sheet of Colourfix paper that had stains of various colors on it faintly, so I began playing with pastels to enhance some of the colors to see what happened, then enhancing some of the shapes as the colors took place.

So this is what I ended up with, very different from my usual style and way of working!
