Autumn Marsh

Autumn Marsh Pastel on Wallis, 9x12"

I was going through my computer files and found this painting that I did a couple months ago and forgot to post about it. I worked from a reference photo that I bought from Johannes Vloothuis and really liked the composition and decided to liven it up with some bright rusty oranges and golds to create an inviting scene.  I tried to play with different mark making techniques to bring energy and interest. The picture reminds me of many a fall scene around here in Southern Ontario.
