Morning Mist 8x10 pastel Blue Ridge Mountains

'Morning Mist' 8x10 pastel
I did this painting for a class demo yesterday. We were discussing fog and mist and how to paint these conditions in pastel. I started this painting with a layer of hard pastels which I rubbed into my paper (Uart). It didn't take much to finish the painting with my softer pastels. I used many of my Great American pastels from the Richard McKinley set. That is my all time favorite set and I always recommend it to my students...along with Terry Ludwig pastels. I would love to put together my own 'Meadow /Wildflower' set. That would be fun!
