Late Afternoon Light

Hello--painted this piece today. It has been raining off and on now for 4 days. I am afraid we will miss much of the typical Autumn colors this year. I was able to take a few autumn photos . I used several reference shots for this pastel. 28 x22 inhces on uart paper.


  1. I love your use of complements in this. Beautiful as always.

  2. Ah, because I know you are not busy and don't have much to do, I'm awarding you the Kreativ Blogger Award, you can pop over to my blog and pick it up. :) No obligation to do anything with it, I just wanted to point to your blog and your great paintings. :)
