through my pours


9x9 pastel on watercolor, Uart paper
This one was painted early Tuesday morning on location. It was raining lightly  you could feel the atmosphere through your pours. "Grey" days are the best!
It was too wet to add pastel so needed to do that in the studio. With this painting the goal was to get the essence with the barest minimum of strokes.

The greys make the colors sing! Hmmm, I might have to try that.

This painting makes me want to whisper. It's subtle mingling of color and limited strokes are amazing!

Janelle you are so right. Greys are the best for singing. Try it...you'll like it;-)

Katherine... I love the way you put that..."makes me want to whisper." I think that will be the name of another painting. Thanks!

This is so simple yet so impressive.
Cool grey's, warm grey's, magnificent.
The color really pops. The light colored
strokes really carry the current or ripples in
the water. Nice depth around the bend.

Have a nice day tomorrow!
