Landscape as Color Exercise

I went to a poetry reading and slide show Thursday night (on my way home from the workshop) and was inspired by the artist's landscapes. His work was loose and dark, muddy, earthy colors. After the slides I browsed the museum gift shop and got REALLY excited by the color work of various artists. This little landscape was done in oil pastels and is a quick color combination sketch. I'm pleased with the colors, not too pleased with the quality of the pastels I was using (a box of my daughter's school grade oil pastels). I'll have to get out my Sennelier's which are like painting with lipsticks. Stay posted - more color work to come.
