Seascape


This is another seascape from a photo taken on our holiday in Crete. It is done on Sennelier la carte board, which I didn't like at first, but I'm getting used to it now and getting to like it more and more.

This sea scape seems emotionally charged with the colors and shapes you felt. I must tell you I so love the sketches you did of your boat--very free yet full of details and wonderful!

WOW! I have never really tried pastels very much - I'm too heavy handed with them.

You've created such mood, atmosphere and movement in your painting.

Your other pastels are fantastic too. At first glance I thought the painting of the church you posted on the 25th November was a photograph. The highlights in the sea are something else!
