Early Morning Whispers

9x12 pastel on Uart
Woohoo, fog this morning, albeit accompanied by rain; life is good.
The goal of this painting was a combination of subtlety and dominant color. It is always important to decide first, what is the color of your light? Then you know your dominant color. Since the concept was quiet I restrained my palette to a handful of pastels.

Gorgeous work, Loriann. Your atmospheric effects and the reflections in the water are just beautiful here.
