Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage - Pastel 4 x 6

A week into the fall and nature is already showing signs of the new season! A small painting to get me started with a change of color palette.

Color Studies

 Landscape Color Study
 Still Life Color Study

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

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 was 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!
