the essentials

12x12 pastel on watercolor
A quick cat-sitting trip to my niece's home in West Virginia brought new inspiration.
On this particular evening I was back at the Potomac River, albeit farther north and west. Since I had to work fast I chose Pastel Mat. I was thinking I would only do the watercolor onsite but with help from my car's heater, it dried quickly and I was able to add pastel.
There is something good about being pressured for time. You know that you can only get the essentials, not time to be picky.

This is wonderful. I love the warm colours, the yellow! Simply beautiful.

Thanks Karin. The feeling was strong. Nothing like plein air to evoke feeling!!!
