plein air orchard dare

7x9 pastel on wallis
So wonderful to get back outside! I dared myself to place my focal point-star tree in the middle. Concentrated on choosing only a handful of pastel and using ONLY those.

Yes, yes, a beautiful vitamin.
Not to be partial B, but I love these pastels.
Nice to see you outside and I think your star tree
works great.

Wow, love how you pulled this composition off so supremely! That soft pale green ground really keeps my eye wandering into the distance. You always amaze me with your brave challenges. :)

Hi Brenda and thank you! I think you would agree challenges are fun.

It is your true artistic expression and where you belong outside, capturing those fleeting moments. 'To thyself be true'.

Hi Maggie and Caroline...I do love the great outdoors!I am trying to marry the two ideas...unsuccessfully at this point. The quest goes on! Thanks for your support!
