Nantucket at Night 8x10 pastel

'Nantucket Nights' 8x10 pastel
I love this time of evening when the sky still has color and the lights come on. This is a scene from Nantucket Island one summer evening. The reflected lights on the cobblestone streets were wonderful. Once you got away from the center of town it was just the glow of the gas streetlights. I remember feeling as if I had gone back in time and I was walking through town with my Great Great Grandmother who lived on the island. Today's painting is on Canson and was done with my class as we practiced using broad side strokes with our pastels.
