I used pastels on Canson Mi-Teintes coloured pastel paper for this piece.

Very eye-catching painting, Wanda. I love your use of color. Very striking.

Beautiful composition Wanda! I love the red fields. The warm colored paper brings really good vibrations (♪)  in the distant hills and the sky.

Thank you Wenda, Ian, Karen and Sarah. This was a major struggle to do because I have these really cheap very old square pastel sticks that I bought at a craft store back in the mid-90's. They are hard and do not blend well. I have ordered some Rembrandt soft pastels in landscape colours which arrive mid June so am really looking forward to using them.

Beautiful, soft purple mountains make such a lovely background for the bright trees and foreground.  Lovely, Wanda!

Beautiful Wanda! I love the soft blues and purples in the hills and the rich oranges and yellows in the trees :)

Very ice Wanda,, I think your colours are nicely blended with the shadows giving that finishing touch.
