Needed to get out from under the leaves today! I have been drawing from inside the leaves for days now.
We took a walk along the river to the spot where we make phone calls. Spent a few hours catching up with the family and took a picture. Then I was able to spend the entire afternoon painting a different landscape than I have in a while. Changed the medium I used as well. Instead of the soft pastels I got out my colored pencils. So much fun! I would like to do this scene in pastels, but it was a good change.
Tried to layer and blend the colors; will need to work on it to get a good feel for the pencils. Probably surf the web for some techniques and ideas, but it is a start.
