8x8 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper
I am trying a new paper... ..very sensitive. It was like dancing on velvet. The watercolor went on a little dark..but the pastel spread like butter on top.
I love the abstract composition in this one. In addition I like the play of the opposing forces - the calm river and the tension the square format brings to it.
I love to paint!

Thanks for your comments L1. For me this one feels like those wonderful dog days of summer. You know those days where the heat settles in like a blanket? Do you get those in Nova Scotia?
