A Winter Fantasy
5" x 7"
Richeson, Art Spectrum and Sennelier pastels on Fresh Grey Colourfix paper.

After some great suggestions on WetCanvas in the Tree Studies thread, I tackled making changes on a finished pastel painting. I love how they worked. I pushed the dark tree back in part by putting snow on it, made the big tree larger and played with light colors rounding it out, though they're not as visible in the scan.

I also picked up this landscape and more or less finished it, but got comments and will be revisiting it again with more changes later. Maybe later today.

Mount Vision and Art Spectrum pastels on Colourfix, don't remember what color and I'd have to erase part of it to find out. The reflections of the right side trees form a more jagged contour than the treeline, so I need to adjust that, also have been having thoughts about color and distance so I might improve this one too.

I also did a quick sketch study in Richesons of my backyard's bare winter trees.

Yesterday was sunny and became a great relaxing art day. Today it's sunny again and I'm priming canvas boards with Colourfix primer in several colors to try that as a new surface for oil pastels and Pan Pastels or regular pastels, should be fun. Doing several so I can try different mediums on that surface.
