8 x14 pastel and watercolor on Uart
I returned to the field late yesterday afternoon. The light was right and I wanted to finish the painting I began the day before with a watercolor underpainting. It's unusual for me to take two days to make a plein air painting. I am trying to move more slowly- anyone who know me realizes that alone is difficult. The real challenge in this painting was to paint the yellow flowers without "painting them." I think I became too literal for my liking.
