spring's coming

6x10 pastel on BFK
Soft is the word I can use to describe what pastel on top of pastel can do.

Soft as cotton balls... And nice color. I especially like those orange tones in the foreground.

This is very strong work. I'm really liking all of your experimentation. This pastel has not only a soft quality, but also a firm sense of place.

Soft but never wimpy. Saturated and soft, I love that about pastel.

Masterful handling of value shifts between the horizontal and vertical surfaces! Never overdone, your work is a joy to see!

Loriann,
What a beautiful landscape! This painting echos Dwight Tryon yet it reflects your own sensibilities
