The Colors of Fall 8x8 painting

'The Colors of Fall' 8x8 pastel
I had fun with this painting. I wanted to try a square format and found a photo with Fall trees and a river that I thought would work. The resulting painting was very soft and dark looking. It wasn't really bad but it seemed boring. So out came my can of fixative and the painting took over and told me what it wanted to be....bright and colorful!

You do great pastel work! I know how tough pastels are to work with too, so keep up the awesome work!
