Lately I've been trying different supports from my usual choices. This is Gator Board, a very lightweight sanded surface; this one was a sort a brickish-colored brown. There are some areas of this pastel (done from a photo I took while painting en plein air last fall) that I am happy with - like the trees. Odd, as I usually hate the trees. But, here, I'm not happy with the water or the bridge. The wall is so-so.
Honestly, I've pastelled this bridge a have dozen times and I'm always disappointed. Guess I'll keep trying.
