Estuary at Dusk, 24x24


"Estuary at Dusk" 24x24" Pastel on sanded paper

Well, I wasn't so confident on posting "Estuary at Dusk", so I put it back up onto the easel and made some adjustments. The lower band of orange is gone...well, it's lightened up a bit. I took a foam brush and brushed off the offending orange/red. Then I applied a yellow and then a peach in the exposed area. Next, I scumbled some hot pink over the yellow/peachy horizon and stepped back to take the adjustments in. So, I'm generally pleased with how it came out. There are still a few minor touch-ups I'm going to address before I call it done and then I'll pull it off the easel. But for now, here it is!

Brenda, your work is so beautiful. Very layered with lots of depth. It must take quite a while to complete a piece.

Hey Donnelleigh!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, it takes a while to get this painting right. But, I must add, it's easy to correct and I don't have to wait for it to dry! HA!

Brenda, this piece has such gorgeous light. The sky and the grouping of trees on the right are breathtaking. (I wish I did that:-)
Another beauty!
