Florida Beach with Sea Oats Painting


'Morning Breeze'          5x7              pastel
Today's painting is done a my own surface that I prepared with gesso and pumice on watercolor paper. It gave me a nice texture to apply the pastels. I let the brushstokes show when applying the pumice mix and I like the way they show through the pastel.
