Light Dance on Water

9x15 pastel on Uart paper

The question is always, how much do you really need to put in your painting? Leave some for the viewer to complete. Allow the viewer to be part of the experience. To do that you must tiptoe into your work. That way you only paint what is essential and leave out the rest.
Words of wisdom from Richard.

hmmmmmm.oh...i love the river.

I love this! I really enjoy seeing the effects of the watercolor on the surface and the weaving of the pastels to make this a beautiful work of art.
