"Golden Field" - Soft Pastel Painting




Our pastel society is having a members exhibit coming up, and the theme is "think outside the box". I wanted to lean toward an abstract painting for this show...but still convey a landscape. Most of the pastel strokes were done using the sides of the pastel...Ala Desmond O'Hagan. Hope you like it.

This is titled "Golden Field". It's 18"x12" on Wallis Museum, using too many different pastel brands to mention.
