River Wildflowers Plein Air

'Riverside Beauty' 8x10 pastel
This was the last of my plein air paintings from last week's Chattahoochee River Paint-out. I spotted these little wildflowers down by the river bank after I had packed up my easel. So I took my box of pastels and some paper and sat down in the grass and painted the flowers. I had to be quick because at this point it was in the upper 90's in full sun and I was so hot! So this paintng is my quick impression of the flowers!

Karen, I love your pastel work! They give such a sense of the outdoors...fresh and lovely. I am wondering what kinds of papers are your favorites for pastel work? Do you have a blog post that speaks to this? What paper is this little painting done on? Is it a favorite paper? Or are there others? Thanks so much! --Jennifer

Lovely wildflowers and the array of colors, softness and depth truly bring this pastel to life.
