Autumn Marsh #2

'Morning Sun' 8x10 pastel
"The sun was bright out on the marsh but hadn't yet reached us. We stood around outside drinking coffee and trying to keep warm as we waited for Stan to set up for his morning demo"
This painting brings back the day like it was yesterday. It was a great time at Stan Sperlak's workshop last Fall. I am getting excited for this year's workshop this time on the South Carolina coast. I will be doing more marsh paintings now in preparation for the workshop.

Nice transition between light & darks. I always teach in my workshop that it is not the color but the values of light & dark in a composition that will make or break a work.
