High Noon at Sky Meadow

about 7x7 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100. plus tax and shipping
Today I took a trip out to the mountains. Funny, new place, but the same things still call to me: fields and rivers. This park, Sky Meadows is a treasure. Located near Paris, Virginia, it's not anywhere as crowded as the Shenandoah National Park at"leaf peeper" time (now).
I painted at high noon, therefore the light key is very high. I wonder if it would have helped to simply lower the key in the entire painting. Next time.
