"High Sierra Lilypond" a pastel plein air painting

This was the third painting I did while visiting Hope Valley with other artists from Sierra Pastel Society.  Before you get to Blue Lakes, there is this beautiful lilypond.  That day there were so many beautiful things to paint - but I was very pleased I got three paintings done!

Carolyn, that's sooooo beautiful!
I have not words how I like this pastel! Something is very delicate and refined in this moment! As if everything was quiet around. And you sit on the island and look for water with water lilies and dream about something nice! This wonderful water! Oh! You paint so well! This is a very wonderful job!
Hurrey! :-)

I love all the colours you chose for this painting. They really work together.

This one, your last, is really very nice. I like the first one and this one. You got the water nicely--and the whole feeling of this place---with a good comp!! I am impressed you got 3 nice pieces, all in the few hours you were out there, and then had time to stop by!! I couldn't get this done!
