the color of light
Early morning the pond was graced with a light created with a mix of lemon gold. Since the trees are all sporting their gold, bronze and cranberry leaves the light seemed warmed by their presence. Usually morning light seems so much cooler.
As I work to make my oils more similar in working method to my pastels I am also working in the reverse direction. That means this pastel was layered in the same way as my oils. Abstract bands of color (orange, pink and violet), followed by the skeleton colors (what is underneath) and topped by local color.
