14″X11″ pastel on sanded paper
“Do anything, but let it produce joy.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
I love the light this time of year, especially as it falls in streaks and highlights grass heads in the morning light.
I started this painting on toned paper and by blocking in my darks. I love creating an abstract composition by connecting the darks.
