Autumn is my favorite of all seasons. The colors are like sirens which draw me to the rocks. I want them all but have to always bear in mind that it is through the use of neutrals that the colors begin their songs. Here are a few of my pastels this week. All of these are morning plein air paintings. In the afternoons they come into the studio with me and we try to work together to create new images simply by allowing them to inspire me rather than to copy them.
