Harris, Yellow Sky
16x20 pastel on Uart 400

This was based on yesterday's study. I am happy with some of it but still like the study better.  I like these portrait style landscapes with masses of trees and light peeking out from behind.

8x10 pastel 

I started this with a grisaille and of course I forgot to take a picture of that first step. My plan is to use the same reference photo to try different underpainitng techniques.

I believe this was art spectrum white.  I used graphite for the grisaille. The problems I had with this I am attributing to the surface.  Maybe if I am trying to compare techniques  I ought to stick with a known background.
