Laguna Wilderness Park

This pastel painting is done with soft pastels on pastel card.  It measures 22"x29".  This was one of those amazing clear days that I seem to be drawn to when painting.  This location is by some of my favorite subjects to paint.  What really brought me to paint this scene was the crystal clear sky with those dramatic clouds and the contrast to the washed out field.This scene is from a hike I took this past January.

Through the Trees in Caspers Park

click to enlarge
This pastel painting is done on pastel card and measures 29"x23".  It is done with soft pastels.  This painting is from a hike I took in Caspers Park this past summer.  I like the outcome of this painting for a number of reasons.  I like my mark making in this.  It does not have a overworked feel to it.  I also like how the atmospheric perspective turned out.  This painting is currently at my show at the Village Center in Fullerton through the end of the month.  Village Art Center art walk 11/10-3/11.  Shown at In the Light of Day show at Brea Gallery from 8/6/11-9/16/11.
