Early light Autumn

hello. painted this tonight for a wedding present --hope the couple like it. 20x16 pastel


  1. Thanks very much Deb for taking time to comment.

  2. Wow... You've captured that moment in the fall with the low sun blazing through the cool air.. the long shadows, the glowing light... It's beautiful!!

  3. Amazing how you do these in one day! The wonder of Pastel, huh?

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog Matthew and Vera.
    Vera- I do paint rather fast. I have kept my subject matter close to home which I believe has made it easier to connect with the surroundings

  5. I'm sure the couple will be extremely happy with this. The sense of light is just beautiful and the detail...I'm also amazed at your speed, swift but with no compromise in terms of quality. Very impressive.
