|Morning Shoreline - 12x12"|
pastel on black cardstock
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find anything I wanted to paint; that was my issue yesterday - I went out in the afternoon, and ended up walking up and down the A.R.T., and then driving out Florida Rd. Nothing. Thankfully, I found this shaded spot by the river with the boulders and shoreline and minimal green.
Bummer thing: I apparently lost my dark blue Senn - the one I used for the ripple shadows above. Surprisingly, that's the first time I've ever lost a pastel while painting; I guess I should count myself lucky in the 1 1/2 years I've been painting outdoors this is the only loss. I have 200+ pastels in my plein air boxes, and they are like children: I know immediately when one is missing. Part of me wants to drive back out there tomorrow and try to find it...
