This new pastel landscape is a bit more upbeat than my last piece, Foreboding. Foreboding was a painting of a dark storm off the coast of Northern Ireland and was very dark. This painting was done from a photo taken while on vacation in Washington State while we were hiking at Mount Baker.
Getting back to painting landscapes by taking a three day pastel landscape workshop with Elizabeth Rhoades at the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts. Here are two creations from that workshop.
