Green & Blue II, Pastel on sanded paper, 6x6"

Out and about again this past weekend took me to the Beaverton's Farmer's Market where an artist's eyes can catch the best people watching around. But of course, no one would walk slow enough for me to paint, so I relinquished my folly to the upper horizon of the distant tree line. A plant, tree, shrub, or anything close to green, is such a difficult color to catch. Maybe next time I'll use every color but green to see what I come up with. Anyway, these is a bit abstract, for what it's worth.

Next week I will be taking a long awaited workshop with master pastelist Albert Handell in the Oregon Wine Region. If I'm not too tired, I'll try to post my daily work and learnings as I go along. I can't wait but I am also a bit nervous. Wish me luck!

Thanks Celeste. I imagine Albert is already painting out at Amanda's getting familiar with the Oregon palette! I'm hoping to post as I go along, if not distracted by sleep when I return home each night.
