Had a great time at Mike Beeman's fun and very informative pastel workshop in Boothbay Harbor, ME this last week end. I particularly enjoyed the color study process on Canson paper. These two are a sample of several studies I did in the workshop.

Fall Evening in Acadia

Fall Evening in Acadia
Pastel 9 x 12
Available at Yarmouth Gallery

I painted this scene of vibrant autumn colors from memory as a reminder of the wonderful time I spent in Acadia National Park during peak fall foliage a couple of years ago. The painting is part of the exhibit "Acadia Cadence", celebrating the park's 100th anniversary, at the Yarmouth Gallery in Yarmouth, Maine. I am looking forward to painting this year's fall colors!
