halo of light, plein air pastel
This is another pastel that I did last night. The sun was getting low and hot air balloons were streaming by me. Could I ask for more? Nope.
Before beginning this painting, the main question I asked myself was, What about this scene affected me most? The answer: It was the way the very dark shadow and its refection played off that light halo of pink and gold behind it. That GLOW. I also liked the way the trees went light to dark in the main mass.
To keep to my main idea, I would make a mark and ask...did that help or take away? Every 10 minutes or so I took a photo of my painting. That may help me later. We will see.
Check out Kay's work here.
And I will go to class. tata.....
