Pastel artist Deborah Secor has an ongoing pastel book that she is posting via a dedicated blog. She has decided to offer it for all to use, at no charge! The link can be found in the right hand colum in my blog. Reading her recent chapter on painting clouds inspired me to experiment yet again with colors in the clouds. I tinkered with this painting perhaps a bit more than I would have, and the mountains/land are a bit contrived (it's not about the landscape here), but I learned a lot working on this piece.
