Julie wanted another autumnal picture, I wanted to do another pastel; they came together in selecting a photo from Bill Church's archives. I'm really enjoying doing pastels on a larger scale (this is 14 X 20) now that I have sanded paper. It's a bit hard on the finger tips though, since that's what I like to use for blending and smoothing colors. Ah well, guitarists get calluses on their fingers, right? Another reason watercolor still is my favorite medium.
