Fall

I love fall! The cooler weather, the light breezes, the sun shining, the myriad of colors all work together to ignite my soul!

Now that I had two successful pen and ink drawings under my belt, it was time to try something new. I took the plunge into a new medium, pastels, and I’ve never looked back!

For this piece I used a beautiful photograph in a magazine for my inspiration.  I began by lightly drawing the image onto a piece of pastel paper and then blocked in the background. Next I added the details of the buildings and the greenery. Lastly I put in the rainbows. I must have reworked them twenty times! It was challenging as I had never used pastels before, but I enjoyed the learning process and could tell that this piece was only the beginning!
