Hello and welcome back!
As promised, today I am bringing you my most recent pastel painting based on a reference photograph I took near my home.
I am calling it “Cottonwood Strong” because cottonwood trees grow FAST and provide lovely shade even where they are the solitary tree as in this landscape!
In the photo below you can see the thumbnail I created.
You can also see I prepared a piece of Pastel Premiere sanded paper with an acrylic ink underpainting in warm colors. I wanted a complimentary color underneath all the green I saw in the reference photo.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this painting come together.
I am also posting on Instagram now, so please check it out!
Have a great day 🙂
