"Rise From Water" 6x6" Pastel on sanded paper
One of the many benefits to painting en plein air is the many different views you can choose from. This one little piece was just a quick painting made shortly after completing a larger painting of the same area. This time around I had a square format that helped me to narrow down what I was to paint. Something about the color combination or mood that makes me want to paint this scene over and over again. Maybe it's the colors, but whatever it is, I like it! There is a bright red underpainting of pastel with turp on sanded paper.
