With this painting, I wanted to capture more of those warm gold’s and dark purplish brown tree trunks that look so well together. This is just a small work but sometimes working small is more fun and the work is finished a lot sooner. There’s something very gratifying about whipping out the pastels and finishing a painting in few hours. I tried to combine pink and orange in this painting which might not be the wiser course of action but if you pick the colors very carefully it can turn out ok. I tried to capture the spiky quality of the grasses and the soft, round shapes of the leaves using various marks and hope that I described the textures accurately.
