Songs of Chocolate and Springtime

about 8 x12 pastel on watercolor/Uart paper

As per Karen's advice, I had the chocolate and the plein air. When it stopped raining for a short time I zipped out to the reservoir. It's all brand new!!!! To celebrate I underpainted this one with lots of magenta and purple. Fun.

Yay! Chocolate and plein air! perfect.
I love that you celebrated with the underpainting...that's so funny.
And the celebration shows.

Karen..you are right a dynamic combo! Being outside again was like coming back home. I guess I am really not a studio painter for it is outside where my heart sings. How about you?

Wow, so so colorful and yet it all works together.

I think I'm an outsider too, but then again I do like the slow, reflective qualities that the studio allows. We need both!
