"Tree across of the River"
10 x 8" Pastel on mounted Wallis,
Today Irina and me went to McKees Half-Falls rest area on Susquehanna.
I love that place - so beautiful and so much to paint.
This time I made very uncomplicated choice of single turning tree
on other side of river. I started from pencil sketch,
then went to watercolor underpainting and finished my work with pastels.
We had about two hours of perfect time, before I lost the light,
but I was just about done by then.
This étude is available at DPW auction
and I'll post more about this painting session on my personal blog.
