Cloudy Day Creek - pastel


When I pulled into the farm on a cloudy summer day, I wasn’t sure what would stand out for me to paint . I usually like the sunny days, with crisp shadows, but as I walled around, this view of the creek winding its way through the property greatly appealed to me. I loved how the cloudy sky reflected in the moving water and muting the colors.

I layed in some color with my pastels and then washed them with alcohol to create a harmonious underpainting. It quickly dries so I could start using my pastels to depict the summery scene.
