Plein Aire Dunes

Plum Dunes
9x12 pastel on pastelmat, wine

A first for me, winter plein aire painting, well actually the temperature was at least 50 degrees. I usually plein air paint not far from the car with a wheeled cart full of supplies.  This time I bought a back pack and only took what would fit inside. 

I did this in the studio from a photo before heading out to make sure I had chosen  pastels that would work on the dunes.  I only had to add two colors to my box.  When I got to the beach I had a perfect range of colors but oh there is so much more color in real life than a photo can provide.
