"Along the Garden Path" a pastel plein air painting

I finished this yesterday.  It is 9 x 12 pastel on La Carte.  We have had thunder and lighting and downpours and large hail!  So I worked inside doing the finishing touches on this painting that was started on location.

How do you do it??? I can not paint all this wonderful foliage and have it turn out so well--and not be confused! I was out yeasterday---and am chicken to try today!!1 Oh well, smoke has filled the area anyhow from some fire. This is wonderful work! Saw you commented on WC, too thanks.

All the gardens you painted so far are so beautiful!

Both of these new pastels are just super! I want to follow the Garden Path & go over the Little Stone Bridge! You now achieve such a wonderfully romantic effect with your pastels!

Thanks everyone! I am so glad I can pull of these garden scenes so everyone else can enjoy what I see. The pink flowers are cone flowers (Echinacea).
