Small sketch on paper for "Orange"
This was to be a quick pastel study at scale for a large oil painting, Now I like it for itself, and it's on newsprint. Not exactly archival.
The chamisa last fall were beautiful. Blowing in the wind. So graceful. And soft yellow.
And more trees. This is a quick sketch that I would like to develop again, larger, more carefully, or not.
Spring in the imagined mountains.
Analogous colors and marks.
Trees at twilight. The light was behind me and there was just a moment when the tops of everything turned bright orange, and then it got dark.
