Pastel Landscape 9x12

'Spring Fields' 9x12 pastel
I have been painting all day and it was wonderful! Tonight my Back to Basics class will be painting sunflowers to I was playing around with some different techniques and colors. What fun I am having. I have three more 5x7's prepared and ready to go. When I am on a roll I just need to go with it. I'll post them tomorrow.

this is beautiful Karen! I just love how loose you can paint. It is what I am aiming for:)

Thanks Sara! I think what helped me was doing lots of small paintings and giving myself a time limit on them of 30 minutes or less.

I have just discovered this web site. I absolutely love your painting, Karen. I love landscapes best of all subjects and you paint them beautifully. I'm so happy to have discovered you!

I think this is fabulous! I'm using it in a Poetry anthology (with FULL credit printed right underneath; I used citation machine as well!) and you should be very proud, it's fabulous!
