Pastel, 9x12; Demonstration at Georgia Nick Gallery, 11/12, 13/2016I painted this view of the salt marsh and estuary as a demonstration of pastels for Georgia Nick Gallery. A good number of people came by, and we kept the conversation going.
On Sunday, I added a few "touches" and changed the name to emphasize the reason for painting this scene.

Pastel, 12x9 on UArtUsing the view of a pond near my home as my inspiration, this is an impression of a singular pine that dominates the corner. In the early morning, it stands apart from the rest of the trees showing its colors with pride.
Pastel, 9x12 on UArtI am always inspired by views of the salt marsh in the early morning. The gold and pink of the sky washes the grass with color and paints reflections in the water.

Pastel, 12x9 - Timed StudyFor this view of a pine tree that stands alone on the pond, I selected the view in the early morning as the first rays of sun light begin to paint the trees. The foreground is in bright light, but the distance still lies in mist and shadows.
This was done as a timed exercise - 20 pieces of pastel for 40 minutes. When the timer went off, I stopped. I think it works for this piece.
