PLEIN AIR WITH PASTEL

Always searching for ways to express my reaction to nature's beauty. The best part of plein air painting is that I don't get caught up in details. 

I like to use pastel to express a misty morning. I love the spontaneity of the medium. Pastel tends to evoke rather than inform.

I was not far from home, so I can easily clean up. I'm at a stage where I cant decide if I just want to play with pretty colors or experiment with some color combo to express the mood of a foggy morning...

with the fog burning off, it's a different scene!
