9 x 12 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper
I was obsessed with this view so I returned to the Rio Grande. Two differences; this one was painted in the late afternoon and I looked in the opposite direction.
I tried really hard to make the grand space but this time I was less restricted with my color palette, although I was very tuned into the color temperature dance. My true joy is working with simultaneous contrast (Thank you Richard) and the vibration it makes. I am using my pastels differently-more like glazes...oh so lightly they touch the surface of the paper.
I LOVE this view! I wish I could paint it day after day.
I will blog more later when I am not on the side of the road:-)
