We had new windows installed yesterday, so I was tucked away in my art room most of the day. I used a PMP photo as my reference because I loved the mist and the colourful sky. I did this on a sienna toned pastelmat and only used my new super soft pastels. I am getting so hooked on this medium that my acrylics are starting to cry out lol.

This is amazing...wow...everything is glowing! Please tell me what brand of super soft pastels you use. I have come close to investing, I am gathering research. This is one of my favorites on this site.

Beautiful, Wanda.  I love the way your foreground is lit and your use of a dark mid-ground.  Wonderful!

Wow!  This is stunning.  I love the contrasts from light to dark.  The backlit trees look amazingly real.  This is beyond beautiful.

Love this! That orange sky really glows against the neutral tree line.
